Severe wet weather put a damper on long weekend plans Sunday afternoon, as parts of Southern Ontario were hit with heavy rainfall and even hail.
Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for the Greater Toronto Area and surrounding cities. The agency warned "strong wind gusts up to 90 km/h along with local quarter size hail and heavy rain" could be in store. A tornado warning issued earlier in the day for areas such as Kincardine, Bruce County and Blyth, ended mid-afternoon.
Toronto Pearson Airport warned of possible delays:
Thunderstorms in the area may lead to delays this evening. Please check with your airline for up to date flight information. #SafetyFirst— Toronto Pearson (@TorontoPearson) August 2, 2015
The nasty weather also led to power outages for nearly 50,000 customers as it rolled through the region, according to CBC News.
The storm hit Barrie earlier this afternoon.

The scene was just as scary in many other parts of the Greater Toronto Area.
Here's a gloomy Toronto:

The roller coasters at Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan looked more intimidating than usual.
Stay safe out there, Ontario.
