After a stormy night in Manitoba, it's another day of thunderstorms on the Prairies.

And the storms that tracked through that province on Friday night were big ones.

"Those thunderstorms brought toonie sized hail, heavy rain, and strong winds," Weather Network meteorologist Kelly Sonnenburg said Saturday morning.

The system sparked severe thunderstorm watches and warnings, and a weather station in Winnipeg spotted a funnel cloud briefly in the evening.

As for Saturday, prepare for a risk of thunderstorms that will be more widespread, stretching all the way through to Alberta.

Most are expected to be non-severe, but there's a chance of isolated severe storms west of Edmonton through to the Alberta foothills.

As for Sunday, there's more risk of non-severe storms, but it's even more widespread.

That day, any isolated severe storms that form will be mostly in northwestern Ontario.
