Weather AdvisoryIssued at 12:31 Thursday 25 August 2016
Conditions will be favourable for the development of funnel clouds today.
A trough of low pressure tracking across western Saskatchewan is producing isolated thunderstorm activity this afternoon. Although most of these thunderstorms will be weak, winds converging around the trough may provide enough rotation to produce funnel clouds. This activity will remain in the area for the remainder of the afternoon into early this evening.
These types of funnel clouds are generated by weak rotation under rapidly growing clouds or weak thunderstorms. This weak rotation is normally not a danger near the ground. However, there is a chance that this rotation could intensify and become a weak landspout tornado.
Landspout tornadoes do not usually cause significant damage but can still be dangerous. They can be strong enough to topple trees, damage roofs or toss debris short distances.
