Scattered thunderstorms developed along a cold front Sunday afternoon, becoming severe in nature in some places.
A tornado warning was issued for areas in the southern part of the province, including Riverton and Hecla Island. At 6:30 pm, radar indicated that a tornado was possible. There were no reports of a twister however, and the warning was dropped shortly after.
Still, a number of severe thunderstorm watches and warnings remained in place for several regions, including the City of Winnipeg, where spotters reported nickel-sized hail.
"That storm developed just east of Portage la Prairie, and ít basically followed the Trans Canada highway all the way to Winnipeg," explained Amanda DeMonte, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
Heavy rain and strong winds were also reported throughout the night.
There's a risk for more thunderstorms across the Prairie provinces on Monday with the potential to reach severe levels in some areas.
Environment Canada is reminding people that there is always the risk for these storms to produce tornadoes and residents should monitor the weather conditions.
It's also important to stay up-to-date on the watches and warnings issued in your area.
