No rain in sight for at least the next five days

KAMLOOPS — Those praying for rain while have to pray a little harder.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Ross McDonald says the earliest day the city can expect to see rain is Friday and even then it isn't much.

"There's a weather system coming through late in the week that could bring a few showers to the area Friday but even then it's not going to amount to anything substantial."

Ross says the Southern Interior is currently sitting under a ridge of hot pressure bringing sunshine and hot temperatures.

"We're kind of in the last bits of summer here," said McDonald. "As we move into September and early October we're likely going to see a change to a more active weather pattern where we'll start to see some weather systems move across that will bring more showers."

Environment Canada isn't forecasting any significant wind speeds over the next week.

The forecast is dire news for fire crews who continue to battle 160 wildfires throughout the province.
