Weather advisory for possible funnel clouds for Saskatoon, Regina

Environment Canada has issued a weather advisory for possible funnel clouds Friday afternoon for Saskatoon, Regina, Prince Albert, La Ronge, Melfort and Humboldt areas as well as parts of central and southern Saskatchewan.

A trough of low pressure over south central Saskatchewan will lead to scattered thunderstorm development Friday afternoon.

As these thunderstorms develop, conditions will be favourable for funnel clouds.

These types of funnel clouds are generated by weak rotation under rapidly growing clouds or weak thunderstorms that is normally not a danger near the ground.

However, there is a chance that this rotation could intensify and become a weak landspout tornado.

If conditions become more favourable for the development of landspout tornadoes, watches and warnings will be issued by Environment Canada.

Landspout tornadoes do not usually cause significant damage but can still be dangerous. They can be strong enough to topple trees, damage roofs or toss debris short distances.

Funnel clouds were spotted in the Regina area Thursday prompting a weather advisory to be issued.

SkyTracker Weather


Thick fog started the day with temperatures around 13 degrees before mostly cloudy conditions took over as a trough swung through.

The mercury slowly rose up into the high teens by noon.

The trough moving through the region will keep the atmosphere unstable through the remainder of the day bringing with it a better chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon as temperatures rise up into the low 20s.

  • Environment Canada issues no warning for Sask. tornado that narrowly misses house

  • Tornado touched down northeast of Bethune, Sask., officials confirm

  • Weekend tornado destroys home outside Melville, Sask.

    I think the majority of these storms will be in a north-south line east of the Saskatoon area, however there is enough rotation in the atmosphere to result in a few funnel clouds as these cumulus clouds build up and thunderstorms develop.


    Clouds will clear out of the area overnight tonight as temperatures dip back to around 10 degrees.


    High pressure finally builds in this weekend, breaking us out of the unsettled pattern we fell into all week.

    That’ll bring sunny skies through the day with just a few clouds potentially bubbling up later in the day.

    As the upper ridge builds in, we’ll warm up into the low 20s by mid-morning and into the mid-20s in the afternoon, feeling like the upper 20s with humidity.


    Sunday will be a bit more unsettled as an upper disturbance swings through.

    That’ll bring back in the clouds with a chance of showers or thunderstorms during the day as temperatures push up a few degrees warmer to a daytime high around 27 degrees in the afternoon.

    Work Week Outlook

    Upper ridging builds back in early in the week, bringing back mostly sunny skies early in the week with daytime highs in the mid-to-high 20s.

    Then mid-week, models are bringing a cold front through the area with some rain, thunderstorms, wind gusts and cooler temperatures settling in to end the week.
