A special weather advisory has been issued for the Estevan, Weyburn, Radville and Milestone areas that conditions are favourable for the formation of funnel clouds.
"We've actually had two reports in and around southern Saskatchewan," shared Terri Laing with Environment Canada, "We had one report from near Kisbey and the other one from Hitchcock."
"They don't appear to be the same funnel cloud."
"These are what we call cold-core funnel clouds and they're not the same as coming out of a supercell thunderstorm. These occur when a thunderstorm spins up very quickly and we can see these little funnel clouds spin up as thunderstorms spin up."
She added that for the most part, they never touch the ground are not likely very dangerous.
"But sometimes they can cause some damage. People should be aware but not frightened."
"And if one does come close and it looks like it is going to touch the ground, then it's time to take cover but we don't want people to panic over these."
Laing adds that the funnel clouds spotted now look weak and should dissipate quickly.
"They are very short lived and sometimes another thunderstorm will form and another one will form, so we might get more reports of funnel clouds this afternoon. "
