Severe thunderstorm watch issued for Ottawa and Gatineau
Other regions affected include Prescott and Russell, Renfrew, Pembroke, Smiths Falls, Lanark
Hot and humid air returns to the National Capital Region on Wednesday, and thunderstorms are likely.
Expect a high of 28 C today, but with the humidity it will feel more like 36.
Environment Canada issued severe thunderstorm watches across a swath of eastern Ontario, including Ottawa, Prescott and Russell, Renfrew, Pembroke, Barry's Bay, Smiths Falls, Lanark and Sharbot Lake, as well as Gatineau, Que.
The good news is Wednesday's weather should be a blip, with the humidity moving out and sunny skies and nice temperatures for the rest of the week.
