Tornado Watch

I am currently monitoring a situation in south-west Saskatchewan that most likely will bring Saskatoon some real thunderstorm action later tonight. A tornado watch has been issued with a severe thunderstorm warning for Maple Creek and Cypress Hills. Storms are moving very fast at 50km/hr in a north-east direction. Golf ball size hail and 100km/hr wind gusts have been reported with these storms. Large thunderstorms are now hitting heights of 45 000 feet along the Alberta/Saskatchewan from Llyodminister to the US border. The most dangerous storms will be coming from the Swift Current region towards Saskatoon. Environment Canada has a forecast for these storms to arrive by midnight in Saskatoon.
