Environment Canada is calling strong winds

Cover the car and crops? 3 cm hailstones possible in Revelstoke this afternoon

Environment Canada has put the West Columbia (including Revelstoke) on a weather watch, saying severe thunderstorms packing hailstones up to three centimetres in diameter are possible. A toonie is just under three centimetres in diameter.

At this point, it’s a watch, not a stronger warning.
