Tornado warning ended in Guelph, northern and southern Wellington county

Monday tornado confirmed

"Conditions are favourable this afternoon for the development of severe thunderstorms which may produce brief tornadoes", the tornado alert reads.

There were also watches issued for Grand Valley, Southern Dufferin County, Guelph, Erin, Southern Wellington County, Mount Forest, Arthur and Northern Wellington County.

Tornado warnings issued earlier for Caledon, Orangeville and other parts of Southern Ontario just east of Toronto have also ended.

At 5:48 p.m., the watch was expanded to include the City of Toronto, as well as York and Durham regions. Environment Canada said the tornadoes can pose a potential life-threatening situation.

This line of severe thunderstorms is located from Toronto to Millgrove, near Burlington, and is moving east at 65 km/h, a release sent out by the federal agency warns.

Environment Canada, as well as the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management, is warning the public to be prepared for severe weather and to take cover if threatening weather appears. "If you hear a roaring sound or see a funnel cloud, swirling debris near the ground, flying debris, or any threatening weather approaching, take shelter immediately".

This, just one day after four tornadoes were confirmed in central and eastern Ontario following a long-weekend full of wild, handsome storms.
