B.C. North Peace River issued

Risk severe thunderstorms late this morning and afternoon.

This is an alert to the potential development of severe thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds.

Monitor weather conditions..listen for updated statements. If threatening weather approaches take immediate safety precautions.

A cold front will move eastward across the Central Interior this morning resulting in an increasingly unstable airmass through the day. Consequently, a few thunderstorms will develop late this morning and some of these may become severe. The main threat from these storms will be wind gusts to 90 km/h and large hail. The risk of severe storms will end by this evening.
