  • Huntsville – Baysville
  • Town of Parry Sound – Rosseau – Killbear Park

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts and large hail.

Hazards:
Scattered wind gusts of 90 to 110 km/h
Scattered nickel to toonie size hail
A tornado or two is possible

Timing:
This afternoon into this evening

Discussion:
Thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon with strong wind gusts and hail being the primary threats. A tornado or two cannot be ruled out.

Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!

The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management recommends that you take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches.
