UPDATED: All tornado watches dropped for Sask.
REGINA – All tornado watches have ended in the province after a day of wild weather.
Several Severe thunderstorm watches and warnings remain in the province though, including Regina, Moose Jaw and area.
Tornado watches were issued for a number of communities in southwest Saskatchewan around noon Wednesday, as conditions were right for the development of severe weather throughout a large portion of southern Saskatchewan.
We have seen several thunderstorms in the province today, some bringing strong wind gusts and toonie to golf-ball sized hail.
Environment Canada says these storms can still reach wind gusts of over 100 km/hr overnight.
That’s due to a low pressure system and an advancing warm front in Montana that’s currently pushing through the province.
If you see severe weather in your area feel free to share your pictures/video with us (if safe to do so!) on Facebook, via Twitter (@GlobalRegina), through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the newsroom at 306-775-4040.
If severe weather approaches the first priority should always be safety – do not wait for warnings and take shelter immediately.
