Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for:
Goderich - Bluewater - Southern Huron County
Listowel - Milverton - Northern Perth County
Stratford - Mitchell - Southern Perth County
Wingham - Blyth - Northern Huron County
Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain.
Severe thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon and end this evening. These thunderstorms will be generated in the warm, humid airmass ahead of a cold front. This front will cross the regions tonight.
Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!
Severe thunderstorm watches are issued when atmospheric conditions are favourable for the development of thunderstorms that could produce one or more of the following: large hail, damaging winds, torrential rainfall.
The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management recommends that you take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches.
