The spring season not only brings out flowers and some much needed warmth - it is also typically paired with thunderstorms that travel through Saskatchewan. 

With Moose Jaw being one of Mother Nature's many targets lately, Meteorologists are reminding residents what they should do during this time and where they can find information on upcoming weather activity.

"It's really important to stay on top of the forecast during the thunderstorm season, especially if you're outside. Lightning is the biggest risk with thunderstorms and if you're outside at all you know whether there's a risk of thunderstorms. And if you do hear thunder or see lightning, it's important to go indoors right away," explained John Paul Cragg, Regional Meteorologist with Environment Canada.

"It's important to look at our watches and warnings from Environment Canada to make sure that you are on top of the weather situation, so that if there are severe thunderstorms in the area you can get into a building and find yourself a safe spot to weather those storms."

Moose Jaw could see some thunderstorm activity from Tuesday through to Wednesday afternoon or evening according to the forecast.
