Better stay indoors - Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for southern Ontario as a series of potential storms make their way across the region.

Environment Canada ended its warning for the City of Toronto at 5:08 p.m.

The advisory included much of southern Ontario, including Hamilton, Burlington, Brampton, Oakville, Milton, Vaughan, Newmarket, Mississauga, and Richmond Hill.

The weather agency says scattered thunderstorms developed early Thursday afternoon and will continue moving through the area before the threat eases later in the evening.

Environment Canada says isolated damaging wind gusts may occur in addition to small hail, torrential downpours, and frequent lightning.

Abrupt Link Between Hotter Temperature and Suicidal Rates
In the study, the researchers looked at suicide rates throughout thousands of USA counties and Mexican municipalities. The past three years were the hottest on record, the United Nations' World Meteorological Organisation said in March.

The storms will reach portions of the Golden Horseshoe during the late afternoon. Some drivers were forced to pull over and wait out the storm for fear that the hail would pierce their windshield.

Risk of a severe thunderstorm this afternoon.

Look for a high of 25 with a humidex of 30.

Friday is expected to bring a high of 25C and a 40 per cent chance of showers.
