Earliest Spring Thunderstorms Ever?

This just in....

Weak convective cells have emerged over south-east Saskatchewan and it looks like the lighning map is indicating the most northerly strikes are coming closer to Canada today. SPC has a huge "slight risk" area drawn for the plains on Thursday which may indicate a very active day over a wide spread area. A little more heat and all this moisture will make for an interesting spring storm season. The earliest severe thunderstorm in recent memory was on April 19, 2004.
