In the Okanagan, there are reports of lightning which could cause potential wildfires as there is a heat warning in the region.

The BC Wildfire Service is currently responding to multiple reports of new wildfires in the Kamloops Fire Centre, including near Big White, south of Joe Rich, and in the Keremeos/Ashnola area.
