Includes City of Brandon

Environment Canada says a Severe Thunderstorm Watch continues for Brandon today.

Also for:

-Municipality of Glenboro-South Cypress including Treesbank

-Municipality of Norfolk Treherne

-Municipality of North Cypress-Langford including Neepawa and Carberry

-Municipality of North Norfolk including MacGregor Sidney and Austin

-Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa including Carroll

-Rural Municipality of Cornwallis west of Shilo including Chater

-Rural Municipality of Elton including Forrest

-Rural Municipality of Victoria including Holland and Cypress River

Severe Thunderstorm Watches are issued when atmospheric conditions are favourable for the development of thunderstorms that could produce one or more of the following: large hail, damaging winds, torrential rainfall - and in Brandon this morning we saw it all - and lightning lit up the sky as well.

The weather office says another round of severe thunderstorms will develop later in the day, potentially impacting far southeastern Saskatchewan into southern Manitoba.

Remember - large hail can damage property, break windows, dent vehicles and cause serious injury - and lightning kills and injures Canadians every year.

Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!
