Environment Canada has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for the Nicola Valley area this afternoon as a low pressure system moving into the area from the north making conditions ripe for thunderstorm activity today.
The threat of isolated heavy downpours delivering upwards of 15-mm-of-rain over a short period of time will exist this afternoon.
This is of particular concern as heavy downpours can cause localized flooding, flash floods and water pooling on roads.
Showers and thunderstorms will threaten the area for the next 24 hours with another 10-mm-of-precipitation expected overnight into Sunday morning.
