Two days after a violent thunderstorm that flooded much of the region, Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm watch once again for Westman.
"Severe thunderstorms associated with a low pressure system currently in North Dakota are expected to push northwards into Canada by early this afternoon," Enviroment Canada's website reads. "Large hail, torrential downpours and damaging wind gusts will be associated with the strongest of these thunderstorms. The threat of severe weather will begin to push eastward tonight as the low pressure system evolves."
The severe thunderstorm watch is in addition to the severe heat warning in place for almost all of southern Manitoba.
