Storms stay south

A surface warm front draped across southwest Ontario, central New York and southern New England, will be the focus for a round of severe thunderstorms today. Overnight gusty storms swept across southern Ontario with tremendous displays of lightning across the region. All across southern Quebec and Ontario it is a muggy, humid morning. Montreal was around 22C most of the night but we have settled back to 18C with light rain. We will remain well north of the warm front today and therefore remain cooler around 24C. Toronto should see 28C. Strong storms are forecast to develop along the front and move northeast with the greatest threat for severe weather, hail and tornadoes across southern New York into Pennsylvania and the Ohio Valley. This area has a moderate risk of strong storms. Northern area of New England and southern Quebec will be north of the action with just isolated showers and a rumble of thunder through Friday.
