Leduc - Camrose - Wetaskiwin - Tofield upgraded from Severe thunderstorm watch

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms with the potential to produce tornadoes.

These severe thunderstorms will also have the potential to produce very large hail..Flooding rain..Deadly lightning and powerful winds. Use this time to secure outdoor property and to ensure family members and co-workers are prepared to take action should the severe weather approach.

Environment Canada continues to monitor the situation closely for severe thunderstorm development and possible tornado warnings. Please continue to monitor your local media or weatheradio for further updates.

Should severe weather approach or if you feel threatened do not wait for warnings to take action..Take shelter immediately.

Should you spot a funnel cloud or tornado...And only if it is safe to do so...You can call 1-800-239-0484 to report your sighting. Please note this phone number is for reporting severe weather only.

A warm and humid air mass has created the potential for severe thunderstorms in Central Alberta this afternoon and this evening. Thunderstorms are developing along the higher terrain in west Central Alberta and near a low pressure center to the east of the capital. The main threats with these storms will be heavy rain, large hail and strong wind gusts. Thunderstorms developing east and southeast of Edmonton towards the Saskatchewan border could have the potential to produce a tornado
