Okanagan residents may need to dust off their wellies
Environment Canada released a special weather statement for the Okanagan, highlighting a soggy turn of events.
There's potential for 25 to 50 mm of rain with thunderstorms Wednesday through Thursday.
"An area of low pressure crossing the British Columbia Interior will produce heavy showers with embedded thunderstorms beginning Wednesday," said meteorologist Doug Lundquist.
"We just want people to be aware ahead of time, because if it comes in a short duration it can cause localized flooding, or seep into homes."
The exact locations of the thunderstorms are uncertain but have the potential to become severe producing lightning wind gusts and hail. The heavy precipitation and thunderstorms will persist Wednesday through Thursday, although the hot days of summer are expected to return by the same time next week.
The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
