Another thunderstorm warning

Once again, Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the Okanagan.

They anticipate the development of storms that could produce heavy rain this afternoon.

In a worst-case scenario, the weather agency says there could be as much as 15 millimetres of rainfall within an hour.

However this warning should be taken with a grain of salt, previous warnings for the past week have not brought about any dangerous weather.

The weather report for Friday also calls for showers and risk of a thunderstorm in the afternoon.

The sunshine is expected to return on Saturday and continue through the early portions of next week.
