Yesterday saw Weyburn get nearly the full run of what is possible in terms of summer weather. The day started with sunshine, and temperatures getting up into the mid-20s. Then, things started to get a little dark as clouds moved in. Those clouds would bring some showers, but then things escalated quickly just before supper.  

It started with a tornado warning for Moreland, as Environment Canada was monitoring a storm for possibly producing a tornado. This system continued to track east, with the warnings moving with it. Trossachs, Yellow Grass, McTaggart, Weyburn, and other communities in between would be subject to tornado warnings. As well, there were warnings for Cedoux and Tyvan.  

There were no confirmed reports of tornadoes along the storm’s track as of Tuesday morning. 

Heavy rain accompanied the system, with some stiff winds, but it wasn’t quite as severe as what was seen in the southeast last Sunday.  

The system continued to move to the east throughout the night, with a brief pause to allow for fireworks in many communities in the region. There was some rain reported overnight as well.  

Unsettled weather is still expected in the region for the next few days, with the possibility of more rain, and the temperatures that will remain just below seasonal. Stay up to date with the latest forecast by visiting the Discover Weyburn Weather page.
