Environment Canada is saying that conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms in the Hay River and Fort Providence regions throughout the day and is expected to continue into the evening.

EC says intense lightning is likely with any thunderstorm that develops.

“Water-related activities may be unsafe due to violent and sudden gusts of wind over bodies of water,” they add.

Severe thunderstorm watches are issued when thunderstorms may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain.
