Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts and large hail.

A cold front moving south from Great Slave Lake will initiate strong thunderstorms beginning early this afternoon. The main threat with these thunderstorms will be up to quarter size hail and wind gusts up to 90km/h.

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. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!

Severe thunderstorm watches are issued when atmospheric conditions are favourable for the development of thunderstorms that could produce one or more of the following: large hail, damaging winds, torrential rainfall.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ABstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ABStorm.
