According to Environment Canada, conditions are favourable for severe thunderstorms, large hail, damaging winds and torrential rainfall.

And as if that wasn't bad enough there is also a risk of tornadoes.

If you can remember last year, tornados and microburst caused a lot of damage in Girouard Park: 

Hopefully things won't get so bad this year.
