Severe thunderstorm watch

A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for the Okanagan Valley.

Environment Canada says conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts and torrential rain.

They are calling for periods of heavy rain that could cause localized flooding, especially near creeks.

Intense lightning is also likely with any storm that develops, and hail is also possible in the forecast.

The watch is in effect for Central, North and South Okanagan, including Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton.
