KAMLOOPS —UPDATE — Kamloops just missed a temperature record yesterday.

The temperature hit 29.1 degrees, just shy of the 29.4 degree record set in both 1967 and 1973.

Today we'll see the start of a cooler system coming through. Environment Canada' s Alyssa Charbonneau says we'll get up to 22 today, 16 tomorrow, and maybe only as high as 14 Monday as cooler weather pushes into the Thompson-Okanagan.

The warmer weather the past couple of days, says Charbonneau, is due to a ridge of high pressure which pushed the temperatures about 10 degrees above normal. Next week, temperatures will likely be lower than average.
