Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for Toronto”

It is looking like a wet and windy start to the month for most of southern Ontario, as Environment Canada has just issued a severe thunderstorm watch across the south of the province.

"Heavy downpours are likely to cause flash floods and water pooling on roads", states the warning.

The agency reminds residents that severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes.

According to the watch, issued at 10:49 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 1, severe thunderstorms with local damaging wind gusts were possible Tuesday afternoon and early evening.

"Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop ahead of a cold front in areas near Lake Huron and Georgian Bay by early afternoon".

"The humidex also reached an incredible 39 C which makes it one of the most humid days ever recorded in October".

"We will go from a July-like day to a frost advisory tomorrow night for the north of the GTA", Knight said on Tuesday.

The rest of the week is expected to be seasonally cool weather as the temperatures continue to plummet.
