UPDATE: Tornado watch ended, severe thunderstorm warning still on


It is going to be a horrific day for weather in Toronto.

Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for the city with up to 70 millimetres of rain expected.

There was a risk of a tornado because of the thunderstorm conditions, but Environment Canada says that risk has now subsided.

Heavy downpours can also cause flash floods around the city, so keep an eye out.


Just as the Weather Network tells drivers to never attempt driving through flooded areas!
