According to Environment Canada, these types of funnel clouds can be created by a slight rotation under growing clouds or by light thunderstorms. This type of rotation is normally not a danger near the ground, but according to the alarm, there is a possibility that the clouds will intensify and become a weak land spout tornado.

These types of tornadoes usually do not cause any significant damage, but can still be dangerous. But Environment Canada said they can be strong enough to damage trees, roofs and debris at close range.

When a funnel cloud is spotted, people are warned to prepare for protection. These clouds can occur with little or no warning.

Rain warnings continue to apply to Leader, Gull Lake, Shaunavon, Maple Creek, Val Marie, Cypress Hills, Swift Current, Herbett, Cabri, Kyle and Lucky Lake. Another 10 to 20 mm of rain is expected on Saturday, which together with total rainfall on Friday will be 50 mm or more.

In these areas is expected to Sunday with a few rain showers and some thunderstorms. After Saturday, however, is not expected with significant rainfall.
