Environment Canada has upgraded the thunderstorm watch to a tornado watch for the listening area.

Environment Canada says conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms which could spawn tornadoes.

A line of severe thunderstorms is expected to move eastward across the regions this afternoon and into the evening. Some of these storms will likely contain tornadoes.

The weatherman says be prepared for large hail up to ping pong ball size, wind gusts up to 120 km/h,  and heavy downpours.
