Severe thunderstorm watch in effect — then a few perfect summer days coming

Late in the day Thursday, we could see some stormy weather — but once it's over, we're looking at some pleasant summer days.

A cold front is will be sweeping through the Montreal area in the next few hours, bringing with it some isolated thunderstorm cells, which could bring strong wind gusts, heavy rain, and nickel-sized hail to some places.

A severe thunderstorm warning that was issued earlier Thursday afternoon has since been downgraded to a severe thunderstorm watch.

On Friday, we're expecting sunshine and a high of 26 — without the humidity we've seen over the last week or so.

This coming weekend, meanwhile, is expected to be just as perfect.
