Long track thunderstorms bring Edmonton’s first major storm and trigger tornadoes in Saskatchewan

What started as a small LP supercell in western Alberta is still going more than 24 hours later. The storm rapidly intensified into a powerful MCS as it went through the Edmonton area in the middle of the night. Frequent lightning, strong winds, dime sized hail and very heavy rains pounded the area through the night and well into the morning passing into Saskatchewan by 9:30am. by the afternoon it took advantage of daytime heating and intensified even more. producing several tornadoes.

More storms are expected today and tonight
