There's a thunderstorm in the forecast, and it's possibly a big one.

Environment Canada has most of southern Ontario under a severe thunderstorm watch, but upgraded northern York and other areas to a warning at 1:46 p.m.

Thunderstorms are likely to hit by this afternoon.

"Hail and locally heavy rain are also possible".
