Environment Canada has issued warnings for a dangerous and potentially life-threatening tornado in Saskatchewan. The advisories have been upgraded from watches to warnings as the storm grows closer and stronger.\nAccording to Environment Canada, several areas in Saskatchewan have been issued tornado warnings. These warnings are urging people to take cover, as it is a potentially dangerous situation.\nAltogether, seven areas around the province spanning a number of miles have been issued the warnings. Several other areas around the province are under less intense severe thunderstorm watches.\nAccording to the tornado warnings, conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms which can produce tornadoes.\n“A very strong upper-level jet will move into west-central Saskatchewan from Alberta early this afternoon,” writes Environment Canada. “As it does so, thunderstorms are expected to develop.”\nSome of the thunderstorms will be severe as conditions in the lower levels of the atmosphere are ideal for tornadoes. Because of this, a tornado watch has been issued for several areas. In addition to the tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds are likely to occur.\nTornado Watch for parts of Saskatchewan includes City of Saskatoon, North Battleford, Kindersley, Meadow Lake, Prince Albert a few tornadoes are possible, large hail and damaging winds, torrential rain leading to flash flooding. #skstorm pic.twitter.com/c8etCNHcxk— Brandon Houck (@HouckisPokise) July 18, 2019\nWarnings in some areas are calling for up to 90 km/h winds paired with “loonie-sized” hail.
