Severe Thunderstorm Watch

Issued at 15:17 Monday 18 June 2018

Summary

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain. Severe thunderstorms are possible late this afternoon as a cold front moves through from the northwest. The main threats are damaging wind gusts of 100 km/h and torrential downpours giving 25 to 50 mm of rain in under an hour. Thunderstorms will end this evening as considerably cooler and less humid air arrives in the wake of the cold front. ### Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Intense lightning is likely with any thunderstorm that develops. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
