Thunderstorms and rain in the forecast

From heat to hellfire.

Environment Canada says there is potential for severe thunderstorms with very strong wind gusts, intense lightning and brief bursts of heavy rain in the Prince George area.

An upper trough will move across the B.C. interior on Wednesday as the historic ridge of high pressure shifts to the east. This will result in isolated to scattered thunderstorms from Fort Nelson to Merritt. The main threats will be very strong wind gusts and intense lightning. Some areas will see bursts of heavy rain.

Please stay tuned to your local forecasts for up to date information.
