Chilliwack woke up to rain Thursday morning, after a long stretch of hot and sunny weather.
Environment Canada says the showers will end late this afternoon, and the weather brings a risk of thunderstorms. Despite the rain, there will be a high of 20 degrees.
The rain will return on Friday, they say, and possibly Saturday. But by Sunday, the summer weather is back with a forecast high of 30 degrees. The rain will be a break for those who were bothered by the smoky particulates settling in the region over the past week, from the forest fires burning throughout the province.
