UPDATE: Severe thunderstorm watch in effect

By Megan Gillis, Ottawa Citizen, July 23, 2018

Sticky, sweltering, sultry – and now soggy.

A total of 16.6 mm of welcome rain fell overnight but it won’t break the heat which will reach 29 C Monday.

With the humidity, it will feel like 37 under a UV index of 9 or very high and it may get downright soggy with a risk of an afternoon thunderstorm.

From Environment Canada:

“Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and torrential rain.
