==DISCUSSION==

CONDITIONS ARE FAVOURABLE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SEVERE
THUNDERSTORMS THAT MAY BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING STRONG WIND GUSTS AND
LARGE HAIL.

THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP JUST
NORTH OF LAKE ONTARIO AND ACROSS EASTERN ONTARIO STARTING NEAR NOON
AND INTO EARLY THIS EVENING. SOME OF THESE STORMS MAY CONTAIN WIND
GUSTS OF 90 KM/H AND HAIL OF 2 CM.

INTENSE LIGHTNING IS LIKELY WITH ANY THUNDERSTORM THAT DEVELOPS. BE
PREPARED FOR SEVERE WEATHER. TAKE COVER IMMEDIATELY, IF THREATENING
WEATHER APPROACHES. LIGHTNING KILLS AND INJURES CANADIANS EVERY
YEAR. REMEMBER, WHEN THUNDER ROARS, GO INDOORS(EXCLAMATION MARK)

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCHES ARE ISSUED WHEN ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS
ARE FAVOURABLE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THUNDERSTORMS THAT COULD
PRODUCE ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING: LARGE HAIL, DAMAGING WINDS,
TORRENTIAL RAINFALL.

THE OFFICE OF THE FIRE MARSHAL AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDS
THAT YOU TAKE COVER IMMEDIATELY IF THREATENING WEATHER APPROACHES.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO MONITOR ALERTS AND FORECASTS ISSUED BY
ENVIRONMENT CANADA. TO REPORT SEVERE WEATHER, SEND AN EMAIL TO
EC.CPIO-TEMPETES-OSPC-STORMS.EC(AT)CANADA.CA OR TWEET REPORTS USING
(HASH)ONSTORM.
