Environment Canada has issued a tornado watch for parts of southern Ontario ahead of potentially severe storms Tuesday.
The advisory covers western areas of the region, stretching from Goderich, though the Barrie area, up to Algonquin Park.
Some northern areas of the province, including North Bay and Killarney, are also covered by the watch.
“A line of severe thunderstorms is expected to move eastward across the regions this afternoon,” the weather agency said.

“Some of these storms will likely contain tornadoes. This may be a dangerous situation.”
Environment Canada said if a tornado warning is issued, individuals are advised to go indoors to the lowest floor, away from walls and windows.
Residents are advised to leave mobile homes, vehicles, tents, and trailers and go to a strong building if possible.
“As a last resort, lie in a low spot and protect your head from flying debris,” the advisory said.
