Issued by Environment Canada at 5am this morning:
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Greater Victoria
Thunderstorms with heavy downpours are likely to develop late today….
A warm, humid southerly flow of air over the south coast today will combine with an approaching Pacific cold front to create favourable conditions for thunderstorm development over the Lower Mainland by this evening. It’s possible a few of these storms will cross the southern tip of Vancouver Island as well. These storms will give localized heavy downpours of 15 to 25 mm along with the risk of hail.
