Environment Canada has ended a severe thunderstorm watch for parts of southwestern Ontario.

Even though temperatures dropped slightly on Sunday, a severe thunderstorm watch was issued for Chatham-Kent, and Western Elgin County on Sunday shortly before 5:30 p.m.

Meteorologists said conditions were favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms capable of producing damaging winds and heavy rain.

A severe thunderstorm watch was issued for the area on Saturday as well due to hot and humid conditions, but the weather statement was dropped around 9 p.m.
