Uh-oh: More storms possible this afternoon

Despite four days of downpours through Westman, we may not be done yet.

Environment Canada has issued a series of severe thunderstorm watches for Westman. Forecasters say that warm, moist air in combination with a trough of low pressure will produce thunderstorms this afternoon in southwestern Manitoba. Some of these thunderstorms may become sever, and could bring with them large hail and damaging winds.

By late afternoon, watches were in effect for Brandon, Carberry, Treherne, Minnedosa, Neepawa, Russell, Riding Mountain National Park, Ste. Rose, McCreary, Alonsa, Gladstone, Virden and Souris.

By early afternoon, hard-hit areas further south, like Reston, hadn't been included in a weather watch.
