Southwest Saskatchewan could be in for another dose of bad weather tonight, with Environment Canada including the region in a new series of severe thunderstorm warning.

Shortly before 3:30 p.m., Environment Canada issued severe thunderstorm watches for the Swift Current - Herbert - Cabri - Kyle - Lucky Lake, the Shaunavon - Maple Creek - Val Marie - Cypress Hills, plus the Leader - Gull Lake forecast regions.

Tonight's warning of possible severe weather comes on the heels of stormy weather impacting the Southwest Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.

The Environment Canada warning notes "An approaching disturbance combined with moist and unstable air will cause thunderstorms over Southern Saskatchewan tonight, some possibly severe. Thunderstorms developing over Northwestern Montana late this afternoon are expected to move or develop over Southwestern Saskatchewan early this evening, and areas farther north and east such as Moose Jaw and Estevan overnight. Severe thunderstorms may persist all night, and if so the watch may be extended into Regina some time during the night."
