is brewing has arrived, a severe thunderstorm warning has been issued by Environment Canada.
According to the weather agency, severe thunderstorm warnings are issued when imminent or occurring thunderstorms are likely to produce or are producing one or more of the following: large hail, damaging winds, torrential rainfall.
