Severe Thunderstorm Watch

Issued at 21:10 Friday 04 September 2015
Summary

Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and torrential rain. Scattered thunderstorms are moving across Northwestern Ontario ahead of a slow moving cold front over Manitoba. There is a potential for some of them to become severe. Damaging wind gusts to 90 km/h, torrential rain, and large hail are all possible. They should tend to weaken later this evening into the overnight hours. Intense lightning is likely with any storm that develops. Be prepared for severe weather. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Stay indoors when a thunderstorm strikes. There isn't a place outside that is safe during a thunderstorm. Stay away from all windows, skylights and doors. 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. To report severe weather, send an email to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm. For more information: http://www.ontario.ca/beprepared.
