Environment Canada’s thunderstorm watch was elevated to a warning for London-Middlesex.

The weather agency said the greatest threat in the storms was the potential for strong wind gusts up to 100 km/h,
hail and locally heavy rain.

The watch for Sarnia-Lambton ended before 5pm.

It’ll be considerably cooler Thursday with northerly winds and a high of 22 C (72 F).
