KAMLOOPS — Kamloops set another temperature record yesterday, but that's likely the last time we'll do it this week.

Environment Canada Forecaster Trevor Smith says, after smashing a 59 year old record Sunday, Kamloops broke a 39 year old record yesterday.

"The temperature yesterday was 35.3°C, and that just broke the old record of 35.2°C set in 1977," said Smith. "Those records go all the way back to 1890."

Smith adds Ashcroft and Cache Creek also set new records yesterday.

"Ashcroft was 36.5°C yesterday, and that broke the old record of 35.0°C set in 1977."

Today's high is forecast at 33°C for Kamloops, and that is a couple of degrees short of record-setting territory for this time of year.
