Weather Advisory

Issued at 10:30 Saturday 23 July 2016

Conditions will be favourable for the development of funnel clouds today.

A low pressure system tracking across southern Saskatchewan is bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms to parts of the south this morning. Convective development is expected to become more widespread later this morning and conditions will become favourable for funnel clouds throughout the afternoon and into the early evening hours. The system will move off entirely into Manitoba later 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.

If conditions become more favourable for the development of landspout tornadoes, watches and warnings will be issued by Environment Canada.

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.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #SKStorm.
. Details to follow soon.
