Thread able to view modifications within main program?


I am implementing an array within the main program and I am implementing a separate thread. Say if the array is passed to the thread as an argument and the array is constantly being modified within the main program. Can the thread still see the modified data of the array at any time? For example,

array declared with values {5,34,6,3} initialized within main program

Thread now started and array passed as an argument to thread

array modifed to be {4,5,6,3,3,5,6}

If the thread accesses the array at this time will the thread be able to see the array with the new values?
