SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING ENDED FOR:
       CITY OF TORONTO
       MISSISSAUGA - BRAMPTON
       CALEDON
       VAUGHAN - RICHMOND HILL - MARKHAM.

      THE THUNDERSTORM WHICH TRACKED NORTHWEST OF TORONTO HAS
       WEAKENED CONSIDERABLY IN THE LAST 30 MINUTES.  THERE WERE
       LOCALIZED REPORTS RANGING FROM 30 TO 50 MM OVER A SHORT
       DURATION WITH THIS THUNDERSTORM.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
 ==DISCUSSION==
 A SLOW MOVING COLD FRONT IS PRODUCING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS OVER
 A LARGE SWATH OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO.  THE AIRMASS IS QUITE UNSTABLE AND
 A NUMBER OF THE MORE INTENSE THUNDERSTORMS ARE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING
 HEAVY DOWNPOURS WITH RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 50 MM IN ONE HOUR.

END/OSPC
Update: Most areas now changed to rainfall warning. We're getting LOTS of it right now.
