Storms capable of large hail and tornadoes possible in SW Sask. on Tuesday

It could be another night of severe weather for parts of southwestern Saskatchewan on Tuesday.

Meteorologist Dan Kulak says the southwest is where conditions are most favorable.

“Yes, the biggest threat is in the far southwest part of Saskatchewan where hail close to the size of tennis balls is possible, and there may even be the development of some tornadoes in southwestern Saskatchewan,” Kulak said.

Tornado and severe thunderstorm watches are in effect for much of southwest Saskatchewan. Environment Canada issued the watches Tuesday morning just before the noon hour.

At about 2:00 PM, Environment Canada also issued a severe thunderstorm warning for the Shaunavon, Maple Creek and Cypress Hills area.

Kulak also said Regina may see some less severe thunderstorm activity later in the evening and into the overnight hours.

“So for Regina it could be after supper time for the development of thunderstorm activity, but more likely later in the evening and into the overnight hours there could be more substantial nocturnal thunderstorms.”

On Saturday at least two tornadoes were confirmed near Glenbain and Assiniboia.
