KAMLOOPS — The sub-zero burst of chilly, snowy weather that arrived in Kamloops earlier this month is nothing but a distant memory.

"We're sitting at around 11 degrees right now," says Environment Canada meteorologist Alyssa Charbonneau. "That was our forecasted high for today. Tomorrow we're forecasting a high of plus 10. Normal for this time of year is around a high of plus five so quite a bit warmer than normal. And after tomorrow, we'll see temperatures drop back down, so, short lived."

Low enough for snow on Thursday?

"It's a 30 per cent chance of flurries. So, we're not expecting a huge amount. We do have some moisture coming Wednesday which is expected to fall mostly as rain as temperatures are still above freezing."

And although we avoided the snow today she says it was windy.

"The airport reported some strong wind gusts and they'll continue into this evening and diminish near midnight to 20 kilometres per hour. Today's gusts reached 78 kilometres per hour."

Charbonneau adds it's doubtful we'll see a return to the white stuff this weekend.

"No. It looks like it'll dry out by the end of the week with highs of plus five, lows overnight of two to zero."
