Get out the umbrellas....

Although we are not in the Slocan Lake area, parts of Kaslo and Area D are affected by the same weather systems. Please see weather statement below:



10:29 AM PDT Thursday 14 July 2016
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Arrow Lakes - Slocan Lake

Potential for localized heavy downpour this afternoon and tonight.

A strong upper low currently over the Coast Mountains will move into the southwestern BC Interior this afternoon, then slowly drift eastward tonight and Friday. As the atmosphere becomes unstable, heavy showers and embedded thunderstorms will spread across the southern BC Interior this afternoon and tonight. Due to the convective nature of these showers, rainfall will be highly variable across these regions. Localized rainfall amounts upwards of 20 mm in a short period are possible.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports to #BCStorm.
