"Toronto and Region Conservation Authority advises that Environment Canada is forecasting around 30 mm of rain for the Greater Toronto Area," the statement reads.

"Significant flooding is not expected at this time, but the forecasted rainfall will cause high flows and water levels in Greater Toronto Area creeks and rivers, resulting in unsafe conditions. Please exercise caution around all bodies of water. Please alert any children under your care of these dangerous conditions and supervise their activities."

Hot, muggy weather has settled into the region, helping to spark thunderstorms.
