Special weather statement in effect for:
South Okanagan – including Penticton
Strong thunderstorms late Saturday followed by significant rainfall on Sunday.
A significant change in the weather will arrive on Saturday as a low pressure system enters B.C. from Washington State. Ahead of the low Saturday afternoon, atmospheric conditions are potentially conducive to strong thunderstorms with frequent lightning and very strong wind gusts. Heavy rain may accompany these storms.
Widespread rainfall will accompany the low pressure system Saturday night and Sunday which may strain local rivers.
Environment and Climate Change Canada meteorologists will continue to monitor the situation as the weekend approaches.
For more information on river flow forecasts, and flood warning and advisories, please visit the BC River Forecast Centre website.
Someone said this morning – not much news on ODN
I said yup – one fire call this morning – two pieces of toast at a local winery got burnt
Municipal governments and school district holding – live on the computer meetings to review ??
Stores opening, parks and museums opening
Things getting back to the new “normal” at restaurants and hair salons.
What I miss is the arts, the culture, the meetings, the school buses, but will have to wait on that.
Lots of media outlets with fear, figures, facts and fantasy – over and over again day in and day out – not really informing anyone of anything.
Bring on the burnt toast.
