The hottest week of the summer is here and it brought storms with it in Ontario.

Environment Canada put out a warning this morning for severe thunderstorms in Kitchener, Cambridge and the Region of Waterloo.

Thunderstorms and rain showers were spotted moving northeast across these areas earlier this morning. According to Environment Canada, some of the thunderstorms, "will contain very heavy downpours giving local rainfall amounts of 20 to 40 mm in an hour or less."

Wind gusts of 60 km/h and lightning are also expected to show up in more severe storms.

Environment Canada warns that "motorists should be prepared for sudden very low visibility in heavy downpours, and ponding of water on poorly drained sections of highways."

The Weather Network also warns that severe thunderstorms with heavy downpours and hail are possible today in Saguenay, Monte-Laurier, Bancroft, Barrie, Toronto, Windsor, London, Val–d'Or, and Ottawa.
