Thunderstorms are expected to develop over Manitoba and track through the area this evening. Strong wind gusts and large hail are possible within these thunderstorms. Thunderstorms may continue overnight, however, the threat for severe thunderstorms should come to an end after midnight.

Very large hail can damage property, break windows, dent vehicles and cause serious injury. Very strong wind gusts can damage buildings, down trees and blow large vehicles off the road. Locally heavy rain is also possible. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!
