Alerts in Effect
Severe Thunderstorm WatchIssued at 23:33 Tuesday 27 July 2021
Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain.
A trough of low pressure tracking across the eastern Prairies has triggered scattered thunderstorms this evening. Any thunderstorms that develop will be capable of reaching severe thresholds.
As the night progresses, thunderstorm coverage will likely increase across east central and southern Manitoba so it is likely the watch will continue to be expanded. The thunderstorm threat will diminish by late evening for Saskatchewan but will persist into the early morning hours for parts of eastern and southern Manitoba.
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. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads.
Severe thunderstorm watches are issued when atmospheric conditions are favourable for the development of thunderstorms that could produce one or more of the following: large hail, damaging winds, torrential rainfall.
