Tornadoes are dangerous and can create life-threatening situations. If impending weather approaches, take cover immediately, especially if you hear a roaring sound, see a funnel cloud, swirling debris near the ground, or flying debris.

Find shelter indoors, ideally in a lowest-floor room away from exterior walls and windows, such as a basement, bathroom, stairwell, or closet. Leave mobile homes, vehicles, tents, trailers, and other temporary or detached shelters and move to a strong building if possible. As a last resort, lie down on a low spot and protect your head from flying debris.

Stay alert for severe weather and Wednesday warnings. Heavy thunderstorms at night are especially dangerous.

LONG WEEKEND: COOL CANADA DAY, SEASON THIS WEEKEND

Things are looking much calmer as we look ahead to the long weekend.

Cooler conditions behind this latest storm system will bring under-season temperatures to the region on Canada Day. People in southern Manitoba are sure to feel the relative cold, with temperatures hovering around 20°C all weekend – a few degrees below season.

Winnipeg 7 days

We’ll see a warm-up heading into the first full week of July. Daytime peaks across the region will reach mid to 20s for most of the next week, which is warm but certainly not excessive for this point in summer.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible across the Prairies from this weekend through next week, with the highest chance of some pop-up precipitation falling over Alberta on Sunday and Monday.
