TORNADO 101: What you need to know about staying safe


FRIDAY: SEVERE WEATHER LIKELY IN MANITOBA AND NORTHERN ONTARIO

Thursday was a rough day for much of the Prairies as widespread severe thunderstorms rolled across the region. More than a dozen tornado warnings were in effect at the same time at one point on Thursday evening.

Friday may not be any quieter for eastern portions of the Prairies.

A powerful squall line is expected to form across the U.S. Upper Midwest during the day on Friday. Forecasters expect this squall line to slide across the international border during the afternoon hours.

PRRisk

All modes of severe weather are possible on Friday as the squall line moves across southern Manitoba and northwestern Ontario. Storms could produce very large hail, strong wind gusts, and even the risk for a few tornadoes.

It'll be important to stay up-to-date with the weather watches and warnings that may impact your area.

PRTiming

Some of the storm risk will occur after dark. Nocturnal severe thunderstorms are especially dangerous because it’s easy to miss warnings while you’re asleep and it’s more difficult to see hazards heading your way.
