Environment Canada has lifted the tornado watch late last night.
Environment Canada has issued a tornado watch for the Timmins, Cochrane and Iroquois Falls areas. Forecasts point to possible severe thunderstorms in Northeastern Ontario ahead of a cold front. These conditions are prime for producing long-lived storms, with large hail as big as three centimetres, high winds with gusts of 90km/h and isolated thunderstorms. Environment Canada is predicting the conditions to weaken this evening, but ask that residents keep alert for updates.
