Southeastern parts of the province could be living up to the moniker of the Land of Living Skies Thursday afternoon and into the evening.
Areas such as Carnduff, Oxbow, Yorkton and Moosomin are under a severe thunderstorm watch from Environment Canada.
The weather agency said conditions are favourable for a dangerous thunderstorm to develop which could include damaging wind gusts, hail and a torrential downpour.
A low-pressure system is creating an unseasonably hot and humid air mass over southeastern Saskatchewan and southern Manitoba.
The main areas that the thunderstorms are expected to hit might see over 50 millimetres of rain, nickel to quarter-sized hail and gusty winds.
The formation of funnel clouds could also occur.
The large hail can damage property, break windows, dent vehicles and cause serious injury. The wind gusts can damage buildings, down trees and blow large vehicles off the road. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling.
