Environment Canada issued a series of tornado warnings for parts of southern Saskatchewan on Thursday.

All warnings were dropped about two hours later -- but not before Brianna Bagshaw posted a picture of a tornado touching down in the area.

No damage has been reported, but hail, strong winds and heavy rain persisted well into the evening.

In Regina, soaking rains left fair-goers a little soggy at the Queen City Ex fairgrounds.

The Prairie provinces have seen their share of severe weather this summer.

Saskatchewan had upwards of thirty tornadoes in July, well above the average of the ten to twelve twisters the province usually sees each year.
