Much of southwestern Manitoba could see major thunderstorms on Saturday night.
According to Environment Canada, thunderstorms are developing along a cold front stalled over southern Manitoba, prompting them to issue an alert.
Environment Canada has issued severe thunderstorm watches for the following areas:
- City of Winnipeg

- Selkirk – Gimli – Stonewall – Woodlands
- Steinbach – St. Adolphe – Emerson – Vita – Richer
The Portage la Prairie and Killarney regions are under a severe thudersdtorm warning.
A severe thunderstorm watch means conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain. A warning means a storm is imminent.
Environment Canada is reminding people that severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes and that lightning kills and injures Canadians every year.
