"Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes".

A severe thunderstorm was spotted on radar around 4:10 p.m. near Canton, moving northeast at 5 miles per hour, NWS said.

A severe thunderstorm watch is in place over Montreal and the surrounding areas. The main threats are wind gusts up to 100 km/h and 2 cm hail.

Mike Steinman tells CTV News that a hail storm blew through the Sudbury community of Lively around 3:15 pm Thursday afternoon.

Environment Canada released the alert at 9.30 a.m.

Flaunt Your Style at Your Office with Graceful Jewellery
This is why it is best to avoid jewellery that will draw unwanted attention and take away the focus from what you are presenting. A delicate diamond ring, a simple platinum or gold band looks great and works well with both Indian as well as western outfits.

At least one funnel cloud was spotted developing over the west side of Grande Prairie earlier in the afternoon.

The weather agency says conditions are ripe for the development of severe thunderstorms that could produce strong wind gusts, large hail, and heavy rain.

Environment Canada says that lightning kills and injures Canadians every year, so "when thunder roars, go indoors".

The public is advised to take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches.
