Environment Canada says conditions have improved and it has ended a funnel cloud advisory in the Saskatoon area. 

Funnel clouds were spotted just north of Saskatoon at 2:15 p.m. CST.

The following areas were included in the advisory, which has now ended:

  • City of Saskatoon

  • Outlook - Watrous - Hanley - Imperial - Dinsmore
  • Humboldt - Wynyard - Wadena - Lanigan - Foam Lake
