It may be sunny and warm in Toronto right now, but an incoming storm is set to thrash the city in the next 12 hours.

According to Environment Canada, clouds will start rolling by Thursday afternoon, with showers beginning later this evening.

Between 10 and 20 millimetres of rain is expected to drench the city overnight. The weather authority is warning of a possible thunderstorm as well.

Another 10 millimetres of rain is expected to fall on Friday morning, with wind gusts blowing up to 70 kilometres an hour near noon.

The showers and high winds should both taper off in the afternoon, but temperatures are expected to fall to a chilly -1°C on Friday night.

Although Saturday will be partly sunny, Environment Canada’s forecast is calling for rain to return to the city overnight.

Showers are expected to last through Sunday and may turn to snow in the evening as the temperature drops to -5°C.

Better break out the rain boots, Toronto. And the parkas and sunglasses, too.
