If you had some beach plans this weekend, you might want to bring an umbrella. Ontario's weather forecast is calling for thunderstorms and hail across the province. The rainfall will hopefully bring a small break to the heatwave Ontario has been facing. 

According to The Weather Network, severe thunderstorms are expected to hit parts of the province on Friday as Tropical Storm Fay moves into the area. 

Windsor is expected to get hit the hardest, with heavy rainfall and small hail being the biggest concern. 

The storm is expected to bring 20 to 30 millimetres of rainfall throughout the day, so don't forget your raincoat. 

Residents in the GTA, you can breathe a sigh of relief, because you're out of the "severe risk zone" of the storm. However, localized rain is still likely. 

If you had weekend plans, don't get your hopes up for the rain to clear by Friday. Dark clouds will also be looming throughout Ontario until Sunday. 

In Toronto, thunderstorms are also expected to last throughout the rest of the weekend. 

However, The Weather Network reports that these storms will bring some relief to the muggy weather that the province has been facing. 

Temperatures are expected to hit below 30 C for the first time in over a week. 

We haven't seen the last of the heatwave though.

Temperatures are expected to rise again by the middle of next week and will be sticking around for a while. 

In fact, this July is currently on track for breaking records of having one of the longest hot streaks in history. 

This Thursday marked the eighth day of Toronto reaching temperatures higher than 30 C.
