Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for Peel Region

"Some initial convection may form by mid-afternoon along a pre-frontal trough in the areas of quickest destabilization east of the lower Great Lakes, where isolated damaging winds will be possible", forecasters at the Storm Prediction Center said.

A severe thunderstorm watch has been upgraded to a warning for London-Middlesex, Elgin, and Oxford Counties.

Peel is one of many regions in southern and eastern Ontario under severe thunderstorm watch, issued by Environment Canada.

Environment Canada says conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms this afternoon.

The storm system is capable of producing strong wind gusts and up to nickel-sized hailstones.


"Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles", Environment Canada's weather advisory reads.

The greatest threats from these storms will be heavy rain, gusty wind over 50 miles per hour and large hail.

Temperatures are expected to reach a high of 26°C on Wednesday, with a warm stretch continuing through to the weekend.
