Environment Canada has ended a severe thunderstorm warning for Ottawa and the surrounding region.

The storm warning was called off just before 5 p.m. Environment Canada had warned it was capable of producing strong wing gusts and nickel-sized hail.

The morning started off mild but warmed up in the afternoon to 28 C.

If you're planning to spend time outside, don't forget sunscreen — the UV index is seven, or high. 

There's a 40-per-cent chance of showers later in the day, with overnight temperatures dropping down to 13 C.
