Hail, severe thunderstorms and lightning are moving through parts of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, prompting Environment Canada to issue tornado watches in both provinces.
The watches were dropped a few hours later, but forecasters are reminding the public to be wary of the weather conditions.
"It's important to remember that all severe thunderstorms have the potential to produce a tornado," says Brian Dillon, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
Rain and heavy winds are expected to persist into the evening.
On Thursday, several tornado warnings were issued in southern Saskatchewan, with at least one twister touching down in Douglas Provincial Park.
