Special weather statement in effect for:

  • City of Toronto

More unsettled conditions this afternoon with scattered thunderstorms producing small hail and gusty winds.

Yet another disturbance will sweep across Southern Ontario today into tonight. Scattered thunderstorms spread across regions from southern Georgian Bay to the Golden Horseshoe. They are now pushing to the east of the area and affecting portions of Eastern Ontario. All activity should weaken this evening.

Many of the thunderstorms have produced pea-sized hail. And a few have given 1 centimetre hail or perhaps a little larger. Given the cool temperatures and favourable atmospheric conditions, the hail may be abundant and nearly cover the ground at times. The main concern is damage to tender crops and plants.

Isolated brief funnel clouds and wind gusts to 70 km/h may also be associated with a few of these storms. The funnel clouds are not expected to touch down.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.cpio-tempetes-ospc-storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
