Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for:

  • City of Winnipeg

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain.

A frontal boundary associated with an approaching area of low pressure will provide the focus for thunderstorm development over Southern Manitoba late this afternoon into the evening.

Some of these thunderstorms may become severe.

Over northern sections of the severe thunderstorm watch, heavy rainfall will be the main threat.

Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Intense lightning is likely with any thunderstorm that develops. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Stay indoors when a thunderstorm strikes. There isn't a place outside that is safe during a thunderstorm.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.storm.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #MBStorm.
