South East Kelowna ...

Sprinkle of rain has quit. Dead calm. Driveway cement has dried off. The large black storm cloud and frequent thunder has moved to the North east of us. Overhead clouds still moving toward the North North West at the same speed. Finches have returned to their feeders.

It looks like the two thunderstorm lines are going combine, that's very unusual.

It smells like wet campfire outside, it's nasty.

Hang in there Truth ...

The sky is darkening toward the west and south west with a very slight breeze from that direction as well. High cloud no longer visible due to lower blue grey to grey cloud.

Intermittent light breeze from cloud forming in south and south west has started. Some rain must be hitting the ground somewhere out that way to make the air start to move this way.

Really windy in Summerland right now. Can't hear the thunder or see the lightening if it's going on right now. Lots of sirens heading out to Garnet Valley though...

Another even better possibility Truth ...

A much largerand darker black cloud has formed south east of here. Can't tell where the intermittent breeze is coming from though. Possibly circling.

Distant thunder and visible lightening to east south east of here

The storm cloud to the south west has "blued away".

Kaleden is starting to feel the wind, but so far no rain and no lightning that I can see.

This'll be kelowna's storm of the year if it decides to hit. Probably won't though.
