Environment Canada advises that severe thunderstorms may be capable of producing “strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain through early this evening.

Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Intense lightning is likely with any thunderstorm that develops. Heavy downpours are likely to cause flash floods and water pooling on roads.”
