Please note: All weather warnings/watches have since ended.
Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for much of central Ontario as heavy rainfall and thunderstorms are expected on Tuesday.
The areas expected to be hit by the storm are Barrie-Orillia-Midland, Parry Sound-Muskoka, Burk's Falls - Bayfield Inlet, Algonquin, and Grey-Bruce.
According to Environment Canada, the storm could bring 30 to 50 millimetres of rain overnight.
If the rain amounts to more than 50 millimetres, a rainfall warning may be required, said Environment Canada.
The rainfall is due to a low-pressure system that is expected to track east across Lake Superior on Tuesday, said Environment Canada.
By 5:33 p.m. on Tuesday, the weather agency issued a severe thunderstorm warning for the above-mentioned areas.
Environment Canada said the conditions are capable of producing strong wind gusts up to 100 km/h, large hail and heavy rainfall.
