Peel is one of many regions in southern and eastern Ontario under severe thunderstorm watch, issued by Environment Canada.

A cold front was expected to move through Wednesday afternoon, and Environment Canada predicted there could be wind gusts up to 100 km/h.

Hail and heavy rain are also possible.

Western New York was placed under a severe thunderstorm watch by the Storm Prediction Center of the National Weather Service just after 4 p.m. It does not mean that they will occur; it only means they are possible. Chatham-Kent and Windsor-Essex remain under a severe thunderstorm watch.

Forecasters said strong to severe wind gusts could result from some storms late this afternoon into early evening. The powerful winds are capable of snapping trees, bringing down hydro lines, tossing around loose objects, and damaging weak buildings.
