A Pacific front moving across the interior this morning will give further snowfall accumulations of near 5 cm. The snow will end by this afternoon as the front moves to the east.

Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. For information on emergency plans and kits go to http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/

Really, Environment Canada? Are you on glue again? How the heck is there supposed to be 10 to 15 cm in total if about 1 cm had fallen when this warning was issued when you're only calling for another 5 today? Do the math, EC. 1 + 5 = 6. A big red warning over 6 cm, but there was no warning over the 10 cm we had last December?

Warnings
3:30 PM PDT Friday 14 August 2015
Severe thunderstorm warning in effect for:

Nicola
Updated or ended by 5:29 p.m. PDT.

At 3:30 p.m. PDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm capable of producing strong wind gusts, dime to nickel size hail and heavy rain.

Radar indicates a severe thunderstorm south of Aspen Grove near Highway 5A is moving northward at a speed of 25 km/h. The thunderstorm is expected to cross Highway 97C within half an hour.

Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Fast moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away. Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Avoid driving through water on roads. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please monitor local media or Weatheradio. To report severe weather, send an email to pacificstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #BCStorm.
