Funnel cloud advisory ended for Saskatoon and area
UPDATE: All advisories mentioned in this story have ended
Environment Canada has ended a funnel cloud advisory for Saskatoon and the surrounding area.
The advisory was issued Sunday afternoon after funnel clouds were spotted just north of Saskatoon at around 2:15 p.m. CT.
The advisory, issued for the city and portions of the central grainbelt, was associated with showers and weak thunderstorms moving through the area. Environment Canada said they should dissipate by early Sunday evening.
These types of funnel clouds are generated by weak rotation and normally don’t pose a danger near the ground. However, Environment Canada said there was a chance the clouds could turn into weak landspout tornadoes.
Funnel cloud advisory ENDED for:
- Martensville – Warman – Rosthern – Delisle – Wakaw
- Outlook – Watrous – Hanley – Imperial – Dinsmore
- Humboldt – Wynyard – Wadena – Lanigan – Foam Lake
- Kindersley – Rosetown – Biggar – Wilkie – Macklin
