0 0

Environment Canada has dropped a severe thunderstorm warning for Toronto and parts of the GTA but a severe thunderstorm watch remains in effect.

The weather agency says conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may produce strong wind gusts, large hail and torrential rain later this afternoon and into this evening.

A total of 50 to 70 millimetres of rain is possible in the most heavily impacted areas.

As a result, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority is warning residents that "flooding on roadways and in low-lying areas" is possible.
