Strong thunderstorms are no longer a risk to hit eastern Ontario and western Quebec, according to Environment Canada.

After a string of watches and warnings were issued earlier in the day, all have now been cancelled. 

The high is expected to reach 29 C, but with the humidity it will feel more like the mid-30s.

Thursday and Friday could see the thermometer touch 30 C with no humidex required.
