SASKATOON – Many parts of Saskatchewan are under a severe thunderstorm watch for Thursday.
Environment Canada says a trough of low pressure moving eastwards across the province is expected to trigger scattered thunderstorms.
The agency says conditions are favourable for the development of very dangerous thunderstorms capable of producing damaging wind gusts, destructive hail and torrential rain.
Severe storms can also produce tornadoes.
By late afternoon, the trough is expected to lie along a line from the Battlefords to Moose Jaw and down to the international border before moving eastward during the evening.
