Although the severe thunderstorm warning has ended, a tornado watch remains in effect across the National Capital Region.
According to Environment Canada, conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms this morning and this afternoon.
Some of the storms may produce large hail, damaging wind gusts and torrential downpours.
The threat for isolated tornadoes is expected to continue through much of the afternoon.
Traffic in several areas of the city was also snarled after thismorning’s storm felled a handful of trees, including several on the Airport Parkway between Hunt Club and Lester roads.
Highway 174 east of Trim road was also closed this morning, due to fallen trees.
