Interior Under Severe Thunderstorm Watch
Prince George, B.C. – Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the Yellowhead, Cariboo, Kinbasket, North Columbia and North Thompson regions.
Environment Canada says conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain.
While the heavy rain may be welcome in some of the areas that have been plagued by wildfires, if the storm produces strong wind gusts and lightning, any accompanying rain will produce little relief.
