Severe Thunderstorm Watch

Issued at 19:07 Monday 27 July 2015
Summary

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain. As a low pressure system, currently in Montana, approaches the southeast area of Saskatchewan instability will increase and it is probable that severe thunderstorms will develop late this afternoon and this evening. Large hail, strong winds and heavy rains are expected from any severe thunderstorm activity which may develop later today. Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Be prepared for severe weather. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please monitor local media or Weatheradio. To report severe weather, send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #SKStorm.

Rainfall Warning

Issued at 15:26 Monday 27 July 2015
Summary

Rain, at times heavy, is expected. Total rainfall amounts of 50 to 80 mm by Tuesday evening with locally higher amounts in thunderstorms. A low pressure system in eastern Montana continues to track northward late this afternoon. Ahead of this low, a large area of rain has already enveloped much of southern Saskatchewan and will continue to spread eastward throughout the overnight period. Heavy rain is expected to continue through the night, and taper off from west to east throughout the day on Tuesday. In general, total amounts of 50 to 80 mm rain are anticipated, but locally higher amounts are possible as some embedded thunderstorms are expected to accompany the system. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Rainfall Warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected. Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please monitor local media or Weatheradio. To report severe weather, send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #SKStorm.
