THOMPSON-SHUSWAP - The Thompson and Shuswap could be in for some blustery weather tomorrow by midday.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement warning of strong wind gusts and intense thunderstorms tomorrow, Oct. 17.

An intense fall storm will impact much of British Columbia today and tomorrow, the statement says, with the storm's low-pressure centre forecast to move across the Central Interior tomorrow.

In the wake of the storm, strong westerly wind gusts are expected late tomorrow morning. There's also potential for a squall line to develop with intense thunderstorms, Environment Canada says.

Forecasters say strong gusty winds, frequent lightning and heavy showers, possibly mixed with flurries, can all be expected with the passage of the squall line which generally forms along or ahead of cold fronts.

Flurries and strong winds are possible over Rogers Pass, which could reduce visibility to near zero creating challenging driving conditions.

Environment Canada says wind warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings may be issued as the situation unfolds.
