KAMLOOPS — The Kamloops weather is about to take a big turn.

Environment Canada meteorologist Alyssa Charbonneau says, after weeks of Arctic air, a shift will bring air in from the southwest.

"Not only are you getting near to the freezing mark, but for the second half of this week we are looking at temperatures rising as high as +9°C on Wednesday. So, well above normal and warm for several days," said Charbonneau.

Charbonneau says it's not likely Kamloops will see much precipitation, though there will be plenty down in the Lower Mainland.

"Quite a bit headed for the coast, but not too much is going to make it to the southwest Interior. We just have a 40 per cent chance of flurries mentioned for tonight, and for Tuesday."

She notes Kamloops has not been above zero since December 30.
