Funnel Cloud Advisory for the Swift Current Area
Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for Swift Current and the surrounding area. Conditions will be favourable for the development of funnel clouds today. A low pressure system moving through the area may bring Funnel Clouds this afternoon and early this evening. These types of Funnel Clouds are generated by weak rotation under rapidly growing clouds or weak thunderstorms. This weak rotation is normally not a danger near the ground. However, there is a chance that this rotation could intensify and become a weak land spout tornado.
Treat any funnel cloud sighting seriously. Should a funnel cloud develop nearby, prepare to take shelter. These Funnel Clouds usually appear with little or no warning. The forecast is calling for Rain Today with a chance of a Thunderstorm and 18. Showers or Thundershowers Tonight and a Low of 7. Partly Sunny on Wednesday and 13. Looking ahead to Thursday, a High of 12 with Showers. More Rain on Friday and 12. Sunshine is in the forecast by Saturday with a High of 16 and 22 for Sunday. Mainly Sunny and 24 for Monday.
The seasonal High for this date is 18 with a Low of 4.
