Environment Canada has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Windsor-Essex. They say severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and evening.

There is a potential for development of severe thunderstorms with large hail, damaging winds or heavy rainfall.

Environment Canada says a very unstable airmass lies across Southern Ontario. Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon. Some of these storms will be locally severe. There is also the risk for isolated tornadoes. The greatest threat for isolated tornadoes will be over northern portions of Southern Ontario, including the Ottawa Valley. A tornado watch has been issued for those regions.

They say a change in the weather pattern is expected by this evening as a cold front brings cooler and drier air from the north and much lower humidex values for the weekend.
