Severe weather summary: September 10, 2021

The past two weeks were active by September standards across the Prairies. Saskatchewan recorded 62 hail reports, including 48 reports that were considered severe (diameter >= 2 cm / 0.75 in). Alberta also recorded a number of hail events, with 38 in total and 15 severe. Conversely, Manitoba had no hail reports. However, there were a couple isolated hail claims in Manitoba, implying that there were a few isolated storms that produced hail. No tornadoes were reported in any of the three provinces and wind reports were also minimal.
