KAMLOOPS — Kamloops and the BC Interior can look forward to a few more days of sunshine and extreme heat.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Louis Kohanyi says sunny skies and hot temperatures will remain in Kamloops for the next four days, with highs up to 38 on Monday.

Kohanyi says Monday's temperature could threaten the 47 year old record of 38.9 degrees Celsius.

But he adds Wednesday looks like the day the weather will finally break.

"On Wednesday, the air mass is going to become unstable. We're looking at a 30 per cent chance of showers, and there could also be the risk of a thunderstorm on Wednesday afternoon."

In the meantime, a heat warning and a special air quality statement remain in place for the South Thompson.
