Weather Shift Approaching For This Coming Weekend

Beach

Our scorching heat will switch to wet weather this coming weekend.

Environment Canada's Bobby Sekhon says that a new system will arrive early this weekend "That'll bring showers and thunderstorms to the Shuswap, Revelstoke and Golden areas. So you can expect an unsettled weekend with showers around - and also into the start of next week."

As for the haze that's been hanging in the air this week, Sekhon says "We're looking at Alaska, Siberia and possible Asia as the source of the smoke. It's not really local in nature so it is coming from a ways away."

Sekhon says that we should return to more dry weather early next week.
