Parts of southern Ontario are bracing for more stormy weather on Monday.

Environment Canada issued a series of watches and warnings across much of the Greater Toronto Area and eastern Ontario on Monday afternoon.

A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for Toronto and parts of Durham Region before 5 p.m. on Monday.

The weather agency said the storm was “capable of producing strong wind gusts and heavy rain.”

A warning for Toronto, updated at 4:50 p.m., noted the thunderstorm was in Scarborough.

Thunderstorm watches, which are less severe than warnings, were also in place near Kingston, Peterborough and Haliburton. Ottawa was also under a severe thunderstorm watch.
