Severe thunderstorm watch...again

Is Environment Canada becoming the little boy who cried wolf?

After severe thunderstorm watches the past two days produced little more than some overnight rain Wednesday morning, Canada's national weather service has issued another warning today.

According to Environment Canada, conditions are again favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing large hail and heavy rain.

"Severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and evening," the bulletin states.

The severe thunderstorm watch encompasses the entire south, central and north Okanagan.
