Tornado watch for Southwestern Manitoba

Just issued by Environment Canada for Brandon-Carberry-Treherne as well as points South and West in Southwestern Manitoba (see link below for full details of areas included).  
Brandon - Carberry - Treherne  
1:57 PM CDT Saturday 10 August 2013  
Tornado watch for  
Brandon - Carberry - Treherne issued  
Funnel clouds likely this afternoon.  
Conditions are favourable for the development of funnel clouds or weak tornadoes. These types of funnel clouds form out of large cumulus clouds or very weak thunderstorms and normally do not have the energy to reach the ground. However one or two of these funnels may briefly touch down and can become destructive over a very small area. Treat all funnel clouds and tornadoes seriously and avoid when possible. Should one develop overhead take shelter until it dissipates. Remember these funnel clouds will normally appear with little or no warning.  
Environment Canada continues to monitor the situation closely. Please continue to monitor your local media or weatheradio for further updates.  
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.  
Weak funnel clouds were reported in Southeastern Saskatchewan and Southwestern Manitoba earlier today. More funnel clouds are likely to occur over the southwestern corner of the province through the balance of the afternoon. The risk of these funnel clouds reaching the ground is very low. Funnel clouds should dissipate this evening with the loss of daytime heating.
