Severe thunderstorm watch in effect
Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing torrential rain.
Thunderstorms over lower Michigan will track into southwestern Ontario late this afternoon. With a very moist air mass in place over southwestern Ontario, these thunderstorms may be capable of producing torrential rain.
Fast moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away. Rapidly rising rivers and creeks can sweep away bridges, culverts, buildings, and people. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!
The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management recommends that you take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches.
Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please monitor local media or Weatheradio.
