Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for:

  • B.C. North Peace River
  • B.C. South Peace River

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing large hail and heavy rain.

Intense lightning is likely with any thunderstorm that develops. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Stay indoors when a thunderstorm strikes. There isn’t a place outside that is safe during a thunderstorm.
