KAMLOOPS — The heat and sunshine across the BC Interior will be interrupted starting this evening, according to Environment Canada.

Forecaster Cindy Yu says a cold front is expected to pass through tonight, and the forecasting service has issued a special weather statement warning of strong winds.

"For us, I think the main threat really with these thunderstorms, if they do develop, will be the winds. Northwesterly winds 50km/h gusting to 70km/h are in our forecast, I think that is strong enough to cause some chaos or inconvenience for people," said Yu.

Yu says if there is hail, it's likely to hit north of Kamloops.

She adds the weather is expected to return to sunshine and above-normal temperatures later in the week.
