Severe t-storm watches, warnings

Quite possibly the last severe setup of the season tonight with watches and warnings out for most of Westman at the moment. Currently a watch for Brandon, some warnings in place for points West that note as big as nickel or even toonie hail.  
All watched and warnings are at:  
Radar is kind of weird with the main Env Canada radar for our area being down all summer but looks like all sorts to the West as I type this as per:

Possible up to toonie hail headed toward Deleau via the link below. Not always that simple but if you feel like taking the track literally, that same cell would eventually progress toward Brandon in some way, shape or form:

If we get a downpour or two, Bets off on what happens on Richmond between mall and Mcds with infrastructure work in progress?

Reminded me a lot of a storm at the start of the season...Enough of a brush to get the light show, some rain and eerie wind but far enough to the Northern edge of everything to avoid the more seriousness. Rain gauges caught 5.8mm and 4.8mm in Southern and Western Brandon respectively. Hopefully folks that were in more direct line are no worse for the wear this morning!

We got 7/10" of rain overnight with a bit of lightning and thunder but not much wind and no hail that I am aware of. Maybe now the grass will green up?
