Environment Canada said the heavy rain could cause flash floods and the pooling of water on roads.

There is also likely to be “intense lightning,” the agency explained.

Earlier today, Mission Creek in Kelowna was put on flood watch by the BC River Forecast Centre.

High streamflow advisories, flood watches and flood warnings are in place across much of southern British Columbia.
