Severe thunderstorms rolled through the Windsor and Chatham areas Thursday morning.

A thunderstorm watch was upgraded to a warning for the area at 7 a.m. That warning ended around 7:45 a.m.

The line of thunderstorms moved in from Michigan and were expected to bring wind gusts of 90 km/h.

"This line, we've been monitoring it all night with the potential of it reaching the Windsor area around 7 or 8 a.m. with lightning and some stronger wind gusts," said Environment Canada meteorologist Ryan Rozinskis.

Rozinskis expects the area will get 10 to 15 mm of rain at the most.

Skies are expected to clear later this morning with a high of 24 C.
