KAMLOOPS — April showers may bring May flowers but so far Kamloops weather forecast is looking pretty dry.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Alyssa Charbonneau says while Kamloops may still see sporadic showers throughout the month, temperatures are expected to warm up considerably as of this week.

"A ridge of high pressure is going to start to build in this weekend and stick around until the beginning and middle part of this week and that means drying out," said Charbonneau. "There may still be a little cloud around, but definitely more sun and temperatures that are expected to rise."

Charbonneau says temperatures could rise as high as 18 degrees by the middle to end of this week.

While Environment Canada is forecasting a hotter than usual summer, Charbonneau says it's a general prediction, adding people should take it with a grain of salt.
