“Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, damaging hail and heavy rain,” they said. “A trough of low pressure tracking through southern Saskatchewan today will set off thunderstorms as it encounters the hot and humid airmass already in place. A few of these thunderstorms are likely to become severe, with this threat shifting east this evening towards the Manitoba border.”

UPDATE: As of 3:04 pm, the watch is over for the Melfort, Tisdale and Nipawin areas. The watch still remains around Humboldt.
