Lincoln Road at Wyandotte is shown flooded with more than 10cm of water

Several streets in Windsor have flooded following an intense rain storm earlier this evening, and windy conditions are moving into the area.

While thunder and lighting weren’t plentiful during the storm, heavy rains filled side streets and main roads alike, especially in areas where leaves were blocking catch basins.

Environment Canada had issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning but downgraded it to a watch before 8pm as storms moved out of the area.

In the United States, more than 70 tornadoes touched down as part of the same storm system that brought rains to Windsor.

Environment Canada says heavy winds with gusts of up to 100km/hr are moving into the region and should be at their most severe level between 9 and 10pm this evening.

Temperatures are expected to drop overnight and return to seasonal normals this week.
