There's A 'Severe Thunderstorm Watch' Currently In Effect For Montreal

There's no denying that Montreal's weather forecast is typically all over the place — especially during the change of seasons. And although we've been blessed with some beautiful sunshine for the past few days, it seems today may not end up being so pretty.

According to The Weather Network, there's currently a "severe thunderstorm watch" in effect for the Montreal area.

Such means we could experience "strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain" throughout the day. The Weather Network warned that "strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles," so make sure to act with caution today.

It also may not be the best day to take your boat out for a ride, since "boaters may be caught off guard by strong gusts over small bodies of water."

The "risk of thunderstorm" begins at 12 p.m. today, May 26.
