PHOTOS: Large hail, dark clouds move through Ontario
Friday, July 27, 2018, 7:00 AM - Dark skies, large hail and rain moved into southern Ontario Thursday evening following a muggy and unsettled week, with showers and the occasional thunderstorm here and there.
Severe thunderstorm watches covered much of the south of the province Thursday morning and early afternoon, ahead of the rain event, and some storms in the southwest became tornado-warned by the evening, particularly one moving toward the Mt. Elgin area. As of Friday morning, no tornadoes have been confirmed, and no watches or warnings are in effect.
