A tornado watch is also in effect for Toronto, according to The Weather Network, and there's a chance the 6ix could see one or two throughout the afternoon.

Rain was already pouring onto downtown streets by the time the alert was issued.

There's also a high risk for local street flooding. After days and days of scorching heat, Toronto's finally getting a change but it might be a lot more dramatic than people were expecting.
