Rainy interlude

After sweltering through a heat wave the past couple weeks, Cranbrook and Kimberley are experiencing a cool change this week – one that could bring thunderstorms with hail, according to Environment Canada.

A weather statement issued Tuesday warned that an area of low pressure coming across British Columbia’s Interior region is likely to produce heavy rain and thunderstorms Wednesday and Thursday.

“The thunderstorms may produce locally heavy rainfall with amounts ranging between 25 to 50 millimetres and have the potential to fall in short periods of time. The exact locations of the thunderstorms are uncertain but have the potential to become severe producing lightning, wind gusts and hail.”
