Another storm watch is in effect across the southern Interior Tuesday, July 26, this time with only light showers in the forecast.
There is, however, potential for some storm cells to become severe, so the possibility of heavy downpours — and local flooding — still exists.
Environment Canada is calling for a 60 percent chance of showers and a day of mixed weather, but it will be warm — 32 C. The same trend should continue into Wednesday with a 30 percent chance of showers before skies clear Thursday and Friday. Even at that, temperatures will range in the low 30s, not the intense heat wave some were expecting.
The seven-day outlook calls for a mix of sun and cloud Saturday with a high of 28 C; cloudy Sunday, 27 C; and cloudy Monday, 28 C.
While the weather picture has improved since last week, B.C.’s typical midsummer stretch of hot, dry conditions has yet to materialize.
