Storms, heavy rain, & hail for SW British Columbia

Posted by on Sunday, July 26, 2015

Isolated thunderstorms delivering some brief but heavy downpours and small hail are likely today for Vancouver Island & the B.C. Lower mainland.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for East Vancouver Island, Fraser Valley, Greater Victoria, Howe Sound, Inland Vancouver Island, Metro Vancouver, Southern Gulf Islands, Sunshine Coast, and Whistler.

The unsettled weather is due to a cool upper trough that has descended upon the South Coast. Locally heavy downpours of 10 to 15 mm per hour throughout the day is possible.
