PRINCE GEORGE, BC: Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing heavy rain.
The strong upper ridge of high pressure has moved into Alberta which has caused the airmass to become moist and unstable over the BC Interior. The main thunderstorm threat will be rainfall rates of up to 25 mm in one hour due to the slow motion of the storms.
Below is a video of some lightning around Prince George last night after a heavy thunderstorm rolled through.
In northeast BC, the threat of severe thunderstorms should be confined near the Rockies where there is also the risk of wind gusts up to 90 km/h.
Strong wind gusts are also possible. Intense lightning is likely with any thunderstorm that develops. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!
