Updated: Weather Warnings and Special Weather Statement issued for BC North…

Thunderstorm WARNING has ended for Prince George. Special Weather Statement continues for the South Peace Region. 

Environment Canada has issued a Thunderstorm WARNING for the Prince George area until 5 pm PST. 

While Prince George just saw a major storm come on through about 40 minutes ago bringing with it strong gusty wind at 90 km/h, more severe weather is headed north, particularly for Chetwynd and Dawson Creek area. 

DETAILS: A strong low pressure center is crossing the central interior and moving toward the BC Peace River this afternoon and evening. As this system passes through, strong wind gusts can be expected as well as other convective activity such as lightning strikes and hail showers.

Confidence is low on where the impacts will be felt, so warnings, if needed, will be sent with little advance notice.

The threat will pass by this evening in the Cariboo and Prince George, and for eastern BC overnight.
