June 20, 2012 — Tornado watches were issued on Tuesday evening as thundershowers moved into the region.

On Tuesday, Environment Canada issued a series of tornado watches in parts of Saskatchewan at 2:28 p.m. local time.

This latest bout of storms comes less than a week after eight confirmed tornadoes tore through the province.

A caller to the Stormline reported funnel clouds in the Lloydminister area earlier in the afternoon on Tuesday. A few hours later, another funnel cloud was reported in Moose Jaw.

All tornado watches for the province were dropped by the evening, but the rainy weather is expected to stick around for a little while longer.

"The risk of storms is expected to continue into Wednesday," says Dayna Vettese, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. "Right now, temperatures are a little cooler than usual, but things should start to warm up - and dry out - by Thursday."
