Funnel cloud advisories out for western Saskatchewan

Those in the western part of the province may want to keep an eye on the sky as the day goes on.

A funnel cloud advisory has been issued for some western regions including Kindersley, Rosetown, the Battlefords and Lloydminster.

The weather office says 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 landspout tornado.

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.
