Severe Thunderstorm Warning

Issued at 16:53 Friday 24 June 2022
Summary

At 4:53 p.m. CDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm capable of producing very strong wind gusts, up to nickel size hail and heavy rain.

A severe thunderstorm is currently near Ste. Agathe. This storm is moving very slowly towards the north-northeast, heading towards Saint Aldophe. Due to its slow-moving nature, this storm is likely producing very heavy rains and perhaps large hail.

Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Intense lightning is likely with any thunderstorm that develops. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes.

Severe thunderstorm warnings are issued when imminent or occurring thunderstorms are likely to produce or are producing one or more of the following: large hail, damaging winds, torrential rainfall.
