Risk of a thunderstorm for Okanagan-Shuswap

Winds are forecast to gust between 20 and 40 km/hr for the region

The north, central and south Okanagan may see a thunderstorm this evening.

Winds are forecast to gust between 20 and 40 km/hr and there is a 30 per cent chance of showers for the region.

Tuesday morning will be sunny with widespread smoke across the Okanagan, but by the afternoon there is a 40 per cent chance of showers and another risk of a thunderstorm later in the day. Winds are also expected to gust up to 40 km/hr across the region, which will increase fire behaviour for the many blazes burning in the Interior causing more challenges for BC Wildfire crews.
