Environment Canada issued widespread severe thunderstorm warnings for the region. Areas under the warnings included Windsor, Sarnia, Goderich and Bruce Penninsula. These warnings will likely be expanded into areas further east throughout the evening.

"Some of the thunderstorms in the line may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, torrential rainfall and hail," said the agency. " The greatest threat for severe weather will be mid-afternoon until early this evening." 

Residents are reminded to stay indoors if severe weather approaches. 

"Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes," added EC.

"The squall line associated with the cold front is expected to push into the outskirts of the GTA between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Monday night," said Weather Network meteorologist Kelly Sonnenburg. "Damaging winds and small hail are possible with this system. This cold front also brought tornado warnings stateside."

Meanwhile, a trough ahead of the cold front triggered severe weather in-and-around the GTA Monday afternoon.
