Environment Canada predicting smoke and heat in Kamloops’ future.
Forecaster Louis Kohanyi says due to the wildfire burning along East Shuswap Road, the air quality won’t be very good throughout the area.
“The smoky skies bulletin (from the Ministry of Environment) is going to affect people with pre-existing health conditions , the elderly, infants, children, and sensitive individuals.”
Along with the smoke, Kohanyi says we can also expect to see a rise in temperatures the first half of this week.
“Tomorrow is going to be sunny with a high of 37, and still there is a potential for local smoke to be observed, and looking at a high UV index of 9. Tuesday, looking at a high of 37, and then cools down on Wednesday, it’s going to be sunny on Wednesday with a high of 31.”
He adds, the air quality levels can be found on www.bcairquality.ca.
