The difference was like night and day across Ontario Tuesday.
Temperatures warmed up into the 30's, feeling even warmer with the humidity during the afternoon hours. And the steamy conditions were an indication that stormy weather was on the way. A cold front began to move through later in the day, bringing heavy rain, frequent lightning and howling winds to some places.
“The main threat with this storm cluster was strong winds,” said The Weather Network's meteorologist Patrick Cool. It was enough for Environment Canada to issue several severe thunderstorm watches and warnings across the province.
The Niagara region in particular saw gusts up to 80 km/h. We also received photos to our Weather Gallery showing trees uprooted in Sarnia.
The intensity of these storms began to die through the overnight leaving below seasonal temperatures in its wake.
Meanwhile, the beginning of fall has already made its way into northern Ontario. Temperatures will be hovering around the mid to high teens all week long, with periods of unsettled conditions.
