Seeing a rainbow is always a joyous sight, but Vernon residents were treated to an extra-special showing Thursday evening.

The colours of a full double rainbow beamed over town June 30.

A rainbow is formed when sunlight interacts with rain drops in the sky.

Double rainbows are formed when sunlight is reflected twice within a raindrop.

The chance of seeing another rainbow is possible again over the next week.

Environment Canada is forecasting mostly sun for the rest of Canada Day, Saturday and Sunday.

There is a chance of showers with a risk of thunderstorms this afternoon and tonight.

Saturday is forecast to be mainly sunny with a high of 29. It’s supposed to be a sunny Sunday with a high of 30.

Showers are forecast for Monday.
