A cold front sweeping through Southern Manitoba today will trigger thunderstorms late this morning through the afternoon. Some of these storms will be severe with large hail, damaging winds and torrential downpours. The threat of severe weather will end by early this evening.

Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Stay indoors when a thunderstorm strikes. There isn't a place outside that is safe during a thunderstorm.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #MBStorm.
