Environment Canada has issued a weather advisory, cautioning residents to keep a watchful eye on the sky this afternoon.

A low-pressure system moving across Saskatchewan will cause thunderstorms to develop throughout the day.

Some of these thunderstorms may produce funnel clouds.

The types of funnel clouds produced are generated by weak rotation under rapidly growing clouds or weak thunderstorms.

The weak rotation is normally not a danger near the ground, although, there is a chance that this rotation could intensify and become a weak landspout tornado.

The weather advisory is in effect for:

  • R.M. of Canaan including Lucky Lake
  • R.M. of Coulee including Neidpath and McMahon
  • R.M. of Excelsior including Waldeck Rush Lake and Main Centre
  • R.M. of Glen Bain including Glen Bain
  • R.M. of Lac Pelletier including Blumenhof
  • R.M. of Lacadena including Kyle Tyner and Sanctuary
  • R.M. of Lawtonia including Hodgeville
