Environment Canada says a severe thunderstorm watch has ended for the city of Winnipeg Saturday night.

But there's still a chance the city could see a pop-up storm or shower Sunday.

It's been a windy day, at times winds gusted from 30 to 50 km/h throughout the day. A humid air mass was expected to mix with a cold front blowing over the Red River valley in the afternoon, creating strong winds, thunderstorms and even hail in the afternoon and evening.

It was muggy with some showers late Saturday afternoon, and the city reached a high of around 28 C.

Things should clear up just in time for back-to-work Monday with sunshine and a cooler high of 17 C.
