SASKATOON – Environment Canada says conditions are favourable for funnel clouds in southern Saskatchewan on Sunday.

Thunderstorms that are capable of generating funnel clouds have developed in south-central areas of the province.

Funnel clouds were reported in the early afternoon near Southey, Moose Jaw and the Regina area.

These types of funnel clouds are generated by weak rotation and normally do not pose a threat; however, there is a chance the rotations could intensify and become weak landspout tornadoes.

Landspout tornadoes usually do not cause significant damage but can still be dangerous.

If threatening weather develops, take cover indoors immediately.

People can report severe weather to Environment Canada by calling 1-800-239-0484 and email photos to saskatoon@globalnews.ca.
