Forecast Calls For Risk Of Thunderstorms In Metro Vancouver Tonight

Vancouver Weather Forecast

The Metro Vancouver weather forecast has sizzled with some record high temperatures this June; however, things may get a little stormier this evening.

Not only does the forecast predict that there might be some precipitation, but it also includes a risk of thunderstorms.

Of course, Vancouver won’t be hit with the same tempestuous storms that are striking Alberta right now. In fact, Google has put out a public alert for a severe thunderstorm watch for Northern Alberta. It will also be active for the remainder of the day.

“Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing damaging wind gusts, damaging hail and heavy rain,” it reads.

The stormy weather is a shocking detour from the June’s toasty temperatures. In fact, the heat wave weather brought temperatures that were higher than those in Miami as well as Los Angeles.

And, while the forecast calls for a dry Tuesday with only a few cloudy periods, it predicts a 70% chance of showers on Wednesday evening. Following that, Thursday is expected to see rain throughout the day and into the evening.

With that in mind, the forecast predicts that the clouds will clear for the Canada Day long weekend; temperatures are expected to reach a warm 22 degrees with only some cloudy breaks.
