There are no reports of damage from the twister, but numerous videos surfaced on social media of the dust cloud it kicked up.

Saskatoon Forecast


After an active week of weather with weather advisories for funnel clouds for the past three days, the work week is finishing on a bit of a calmer note.

A disturbance brought in some rain through the Saskatoon area late this morning, but despite the precipitation we managed to warm into the low 20s by noon – up from our 12 degree overnight low.

There is a fairly good chance of showers and thunderstorms late in the day as temperatures rise into the mid-20s.


There is a fairly good chance of thunderstorms not only through the evening, but also overnight as the mercury falls back to around 14 degrees.


Once clouds clear from the overnight disturbance and storms early tomorrow morning it looks like we’ll probably see some sunny breaks early in the day before clouds build back in during the afternoon with a chance of showers and thunderstorms late in the afternoon through the evening.

It’ll also be a nice, warm start to the weekend with an expected daytime high around 27 degrees, but it will be humid, so it will feel four to five degrees warmer like the low 30s in the afternoon.

There is the potential in the southeastern portion of the province for severe weather with supercellular thunderstorms developing and the potential for tornadoes.

Clouds look like they’ll build in a bit earlier in the day on Sunday with a chance of late day showers or thunderstorms as the upper ridge that brought in the heat starts to break down.

As such temperatures are expected to be a few degrees cooler on Sunday, but still hitting a high in the mid-20s with a humidex making it feel a few degrees warmer.

Work Week Outlook

Heavier rain looks like it’ll move in midday on Monday as an upper level low pressure system, a precipitation packed system, slides through.

Some models are pushing rainfall totals as high as 40 to 50 millimetres from Monday through Tuesday and while there is still a bit of discrepancy in the track, 20 to 40 millimetres of rain is not unlikely over the period.

Daytime highs will also be pushed back into the high teens for the majority of the beginning of the week due to the rain before bumping back into the low 20s as the rain tapers off and sunshine returns midweek.
