Risk of thunderstorm in Metro Vancouver today

Jun 14 2016, 3:11 pm

Rough weather is in the forecast across much of British Columbia today, to the extent that some parts of the province could even see snow.

According to Environment Canada, a potent system is bringing rainfall and a risk of thunderstorms and hail to the Metro Vancouver region throughout the entire day, until approximately 9 p.m. At times, the rainfall will be heavy.

Temperatures will take a dive from last week’s highs, reaching no more than 14°C and a low of 10°C by the water.

With the freezing level plummeting to mountain peak levels, upper elevations in B.C. could experience snowfall, including the upper elevations of Whistler where as much as 10 cm can be expected.

On Wednesday, conditions will improve with rainfall dissipating by the early afternoon, making way for clear and sunny skies. The cooler weather is expected to last until Sunday when a period of warm and sunny conditions begins.
