Alberta: 6cm Hail, Tornado Watch In Effect

Calgary saw the beginings of an incredible storm today. Here is a site with some great photos and weather information from Calgary:
Environment Canada reported 6cm hail with these storms that headed out of the Calgary area towards Drumheller which is now under a tornado watch. The cells seem to have split at this time and severe thunderstorm watches have been extended into western Saskatchewan. This system is moving quickly north-east, possibly even skipping on radar. With a forecast of some very high temperatures around Saskatoon on Monday, this tends to suggest that these storms will be nocturnal (look at the moon). We could see these storms increase in strength after the sun goes down. This system must be watched closely. Check CanadianPrairieStorms Yahoo group for more...
