Stay indoors this afternoon! There's a severe thunderstorm watch in Ontario and it could bring intense conditions. 

Large hail, 100 kilometres an hour winds, and flash flooding could all be in store for areas in the province.

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms this afternoon.

Currently, Hamilton, Niagara, Sarnia-Lambton, Windsor-Essex, Huron-Perth, London-Middlesex and others are under the warning, according to Environment Canada.

Southern parts of the province can expect to get hit with a downpour from this afternoon and into the early evening. 

Wind this fast can toss flying objects and debris into the air, cause trees to snap, and induce property damage. 

Make sure to take necessary precautions, as torrential rain can also flood properties and streets.
