Greater Victoria might be in for a thunderstorm tonight


Not that you need us to point this out, but it’s raining in Victoria this afternoon. And judging by the weather forecast, you can expect it to continue into the evening and after midnight.

Joining that rain, though, could be a thunderstorm.

The government weather forecast says there’s chances of a thunderstorm early Saturday evening.

Thunderstorms aren’t that common in Greater Victoria, but one did occur towards the end of June.

For the most part, Victorians seem pretty happy with the weather, especially considering how dry this summer has been.

Drivers should also take extra precautions while driving today, as the roads may be slippery in the wet conditions.

Unfortunately, the stormy weather might make it a little bit harder to watch the Perseid meteor shower or Shakespeare in Love at Beacon Hill Park
