Warm with a chance of storms

Warm with a chance of storms

Parts of the GTA could be in for some messy weather this afternoon ahead of rain and thunderstorms later today.

The National Weather Service map predicting a "marginal" chance of severe weather in central and eastern North Carolina on Tuesday.

The threat for strong storms returns this afternoon and evening, but the weather should quiet down through the rest of the week.

Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the South Thompson and Nicola regions.

Officials say the storm is moving east at 35 miles per hour and could produce quarter-size hail and wind gusts up to 70 miles per hour.

Our main concern is for the potential of strong to severe thunderstorms north and west of Boston, especially outside of Interstate 495 in central and western MA. "It was not your typical garden variety thunderstorm that went through there last night".

A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued Wednesday for parts of in MA and New Hampshire.

Aside from the storms, the GTA will see a high of 21 C Wednesday. The fallen oak caused heavy damage to the roof of the home at 201 St. Andrews Road in Irmo, according to a Facebook post from Leeza's Care Connection and the Irmo Fire District.

LIVE STORMTracker weather updates are coming up at 5:30 pm and 10 pm on KXLF.

The severity of the storms will depend on how much sunshine we get Wednesday afternoon.
