Severe thunderstorms possible this afternoon and evening over portions of Southern Saskatchewan. Very warm and humid air remains in place over much of Southern Saskatchewan. A trough of low pressure will push eastward from Alberta this afternoon acting as a trigger for storms to develop along the trough. The best chance for severe weather will be over southern regions of the province ahead of the trough where sunshine is expected for much of the day providing more energy to the atmosphere. An area of rain moving through west central areas of the province this morning will move to the north this afternoon allowing some sunny breaks to develop later this afternoon aiding in thunderstorm redevelopment for west central areas of the province. With the instability and sufficient shear in the atmosphere a couple of tornadoes are possible over south central areas of the province later this afternoon. These storms will continue moving eastward this evening to areas near the Manitoba border by late evening. The thunderstorm risk will end with the passage of the trough as it moves eastward across the province as drier and more stable air moves in behind the trough. The forecast is calling for Increasing Cloud Today, a chance of Thundershowers; Southeast Wind at 50-70km/hr shifting to West at 40-60km/hr and a High of 27. Clearing Tonight, Southwest wind at 40-60km/hr and a Low of 9. Mainly Sunny on Wednesday and a High of 21. Thursday's outlook calls for Sunshine with a High of 26. Looking ahead to Friday, Sunny and 28; 27 in the Sunshine by Saturday.
