It looks like it's officially the season for wicked weather in Alberta.

At around 4:30 p.m. MT Friday, videos and photos posted on social media seemed to show a tornado touching down in Mannville, Alta., east of Edmonton.

Chelsey Konieczny told HuffPost Canada that her dad captured a video of the nasty looking landspout sweeping across the prairie (you can watch the video above).

Environment Canada didn't issue a tornado warning at the time, but at 7:20 p.m. MT posted a weather advisory that funnel clouds could develop in central and southern Alberta.
