As far as I can recall, the first watch-worthy possibility of the season for a severe t-storm this afternoon into this evening as per Env Canada: https://weather.gc.ca/warnings/report_e.html?mb7 As always, a watch are Env Canada alerting to potential for a storm to develop but are not a guarantee (that would be a "warning"). That said, from radar (or my own two eyes ) it does look like something is brewing just to the Southwest of Brandon that's worth keeping an eye on in the short-term: https://www.wunderground.com/radar/radblast.asp?ID=MBX®ion=a3&lat=49.91999817&lon=-99.94999695&label=Brandon%2c%20Manitoba
Because on whats on radar right now at least, the webcam on the weather page should provide a good perspective for what may or may not progress into the Brandon area:https://ebrandon.ca/weather_camimage.aspx
You’re asking for something the system isn’t intended for. They've published the kind of alerts that the system is setup for here: https://www.alertready.ca/#types The only natural triggers will be tornado, flash flood, earthquake, hurricane. If they made your phone scream for every thunderstorm warning, people wouldn't take the alerts seriously when it comes time to warn for the 10-bells-serious life-or-death emergencies like those listed above. Thats not to say a thunderstorm cant spawn a tornado, but in that case they would put out a tornado warning and you would get the alert. If you want alerts to come right to you for important but less critical weather warnings, Environment Canada does make that info available... one option being the Brandon-specific Twitter account that Env Canada maintains. If you were setup with that account you would've gotten the warning this afternoon: https://twitter.com/ECAlertMB52
