It's going to be a very rainy next few days for Salmon Arm and Kamloops residents.

Roughly 20 to 40 mm of rain may fall between today, June 30, and Thursday in the South and North Thompson and in the Shuswap, with the higher rainfall amounts expected over the mountains, according to Environment Canada in a special weather statement.

"However, there remains some uncertainty about just how much rain will fall during this prolonged event. In addition to the widespread synoptic rain, thunderstorms will have the potential of adding 15 to 25 mm over short periods," reads the statement.

Showers are expected to turn into rain, heavy at times, tonight or Wednesday morning and is expected to stop Thursday morning with showers picking up again in the afternoon, according to the statement.

Environment Canada is also warning about rain and the resulting rising river waters in the Quesnel River, the North Thompson River and South Thompson River.
