UPDATE: As of 4 p.m. on July 8, the severe thunderstorm watch has been upgraded to severe thunderstorm warning.
Another hot day in Kamloops, another thunderstorm alert.
For the third time this week, Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for Kamloops and the South Thompson region.
Thunderstorms are possible on Thursday afternoon (July 8) and into the evening.
Environment Canada said any thunderstorms that arise are expected to be short-lived, but have the potential to produce pea- to nickel-sized hail and downpours of rain that could amount to between five and 15 millimetres.
Environment Canada is advising people to be on the lookout for adverse weather conditions and take necessary safety precautions.
Kamloops was the subject of a severe thunderstorm watch on July 5 and a severe thunderstorm watch on July 7 that was upgraded to a severe thunderstorm warning.
Both days failed to produce thunderstorms in the city.
A thunderstorm that rolled into Kamloops on July 1 led to a five-hour lightning storm that sparked numerous fires, most notably the blaze between Juniper Ridge and Valleyview that led to evacuations of neighbourhoods.
Firefighters managed to get the blaze under control, with no structures lost.
