Severe thunderstorms are expected to be isolated and not widespread.

"Take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches," EC warns in a statement.

"Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Go indoors and move away from windows and skylights [and] avoid areas of the building that could be affecting by falling debris."

No tornado watches or warnings are currently in effect.

"We're currently seeing a couple of cells target the region," says Weather Network meteorologist Kelly Sonnenburg.

"Monday's thunderstorm risk should push out by the early evening, but there's a widespread risk of storms throughout the day Tuesday as well."
