KAMLOOPS — It looks like the sub-zero temperatures are about to ease off a bit in Kamloops.

Environment Canada meteorologist Lisa West says the Arctic air mass which moved in late last week bringing near-record freezing temperatures well below normal could end soon.

"We have to hang tight for another day or two. We're only expecting a high of -4 today and a high of -1 for tomorrow," she says. "There is a gradual warming trend throughout the remainder of the week and the weekend which is only going to bring us back to seasonal temperatures."

West expects highs will reach six on Friday and five or six degrees this weekend.

In the meantime however, she's forecasting flurries to hit our area today.

"Yes, we've got a very weak front that's moving across the province. So, we're expecting flurries to start any time. The amounts will be quite light anywhere from a trace to two centimetres in the Kamloops valley."
