Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect for Smithers, Bulkley Valley and the Lakes

Visitors to North Coast inland areas may find that the afternoon brings the possibility of severe weather, with word to keep a watch on the skies for any change in conditions.

Towards that advisory, Environment Canada issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch early Sunday morning for inland areas of the North Coast.

The Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for the Bulkley Valley and the Lakes District, as well as for an area near Smithers and northwest.

Conditions were reported as favourable for thunderstorms to develop this afternoon. Some of these storms may become severe with potential to produce heavy downpours, large hail and strong wind gusts.

The Thunderstorm Watch also extends to points east of the Lakes District and into the Prince George region.

Terrace and Prince Rupert are listed at having a risk of thunderstorms into the afternoon.

You can find out more about the conditions and any further expansion of the advisories from the Environment Canada website.
