The severe storm watches issued in southern Saskatchewan communities Tuesday night have been dropped but are expected to resurface Wednesday, with the impacted area to be much larger but less severe in force.

Heavy rains and hail were the result of a cold front that swept into parts of the Prairies and helped to trigger the evening storms, before tapering off overnight.

There were reports of dime-sized hail in the Delisle area of Saskatchewan and strong winds, hail and lightning were also reported in Alberta as well.
