On Thursday morning, Environment Canada issued a tornado watch warning for the Montreal area. 

What could have caused this tornado watch? According to the weather provider, Montreal's current meteorological conditions, such as rain and strong winds, could lead to “a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation.”

The regions of the South Shore of Montreal, the Laurentians, Lanaudière, Mauricie, Outaouais, Quebec City, Saguenay and the Richelieu Valley have also been called for a tornado watch. 

"This afternoon and evening, conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms with the potential to produce tornadoes. Strong winds, large hail and heavy rainfall are also possible with these storms," warns The Weather Network on its Web page.

The current watch issed by Environment Canada is in effect until further notice. For complete details, visit The Weather Network (and stay dafe out there, Montreal!)
