Brockville – A Wind Warning along with a Severe Thunderstorm Watch are in effect for our entire region.

Severe Thunderstorm Watch:

Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring.

Wind gusts to 90 km/h are likely across much of the region after a cold front moves through from late afternoon to early evening.

Winds will diminish late this evening as a high pressure ridge moves in.

Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage. High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.

Wind warnings are issued when there is a significant risk of damaging winds.

Severe Thunderstorm Watch:

Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing damaging wind gusts.

Severe thunderstorms are possible late this afternoon and early this evening as a cold front blasts through.

The main threat is damaging wind gusts to 110 km/h.

Very strong wind gusts can damage buildings, down trees and blow large vehicles off the road. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!

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 ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
