Severe Thunderstorm Watch Upgraded to Warning

Friday, August 5, 2016 @ 3:08 PM

Prince George, B.C. – A severe thunderstorm warning is now in effect for Prince George.

Environment Canada made the upgrade from a thunderstorm watch a short time ago.

Meteorologists are tracking a line of severe thunderstorms just south of Prince George near Red Rock moving northwestward at 30 km/h.

The line is expected to approach Prince George in the next hour and is capable of producing very strong wind gusts, up to nickel size hail and heavy rain.

Environment Canada warns large hail can damage property and cause injury adding strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles.

You are encouraged to head indoors once the storm arrives.


So, when the weather people say the temp is 28 celsius but feels like 30, who is it that decides that 28 feels like 30? Is there a panel of temperature feeling experts that put their temperature feeling guesses into a hat and one of them gets picked? Can I get a job deciding what a real temperature actually feels like? How much will I get paid for this job?
