Today's conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may produce damaging wind gusts, hail, heavy rain and tornadoes.

Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for Swift Current, Herbert, Cabri, Kyle and Lucky Lake this afternoon, warning residents to be on the lookout for signs of severe weather. 

Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year; taking cover when hearing thunder can save lives.
