Storm, wind potential reignites in Manitoba and northwestern Ontario

Any Father's Day plans involving the great outdoors in Manitoba and northwestern Ontario will need backup ideas for the indoors as there will be a threat of thunderstorms and blustery wind gusts looming over the two provinces.

A cold front and low-pressure system will be responsible for potentially ruining some Father's Day plans outside on Sunday afternoon and evening, whipping up some howling wind gusts and a risk for thunderstorms.

Some of the storms in northwestern Ontario on Sunday could turn severe, with large hail, strong wind gusts and heavy rainfall the primary risks associated with any that form.

It will be important to stay on top of the weather watches and warnings in your area, as conditions can change quickly when severe weather hits.

Sunday: Severe thunderstorm risk surfaces in northwestern Ontario, blustery winds farther west

A cold front draped over Saskatchewan and Manitoba is going to bring some blustery conditions early Sunday evening, with winds gusts reaching up to 90 km/h.

As well, as a weaker, low-pressure system nudges into northwestern Ontario, the warmer temperatures and daytime heating will bring about the risk of very scattered, but potentially severe thunderstorms during the evening on Sunday.

While the instability will bring about the risk of non-severe thunderstorms farther north, closer to the international border, the risk is greater for more severe storms to materialize.

The main hazards associated with any severe storm that formulates will be heavy rainfall, strong wind gusts and nickel-sized or greater large hail.

The timing has some uncertainty associated with it as the thunderstorms can vary, but some models suggest them developing slightly earlier in the afternoon on Sunday.
