Beating the heat in Kamloops

The BC Day long weekend was a scorcher, with a lengthy heat wave bringing in temperatures in the high 30s. As such, the Thompson rivers drew plenty of people and their furry friends as cooling down in the water was a popular activity

The BC Day long weekend was a scorcher, with a lengthy heat wave bringing in temperatures in the high 30s.

As such, the Thompson rivers drew plenty of people and their furry friends as cooling down in the water was a popular activity.

KTW's Allen Douglas was out and about as he gathered these photos of fun in the sun.

The forecast is changing, though, with cooler mercury readings on the way. On Tuesday (Aug. 2), expect a high of 30, followed by 29 and showers on Wednesday and 23 and showers on Thursday.

But sunshine and hotter temps should return in time for the weekend's Hot Nite in the City event downtown on Saturday and Ribfest, which takes place in Riverside Park on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Environment Canada is calling for a sunny weekend, with highs of 27 on Friday, 31 on Saturday and 33 on Sunday.
