It's expected to be a stormy few days for the city, with The Weather Network forecasting thunderstorms well into Wednesday night.
With the city already having had its share of flooding problems this year, there's a worry that a large storm could do some extended damage to a number of buildings and basements around Toronto.
That being said, with the humidity making temperatures feel close to 40 degrees this past week, a heavy storm could be exactly what this city needs to cool off.
Though as stunning as it could be to watch a thunderous storm, it's important to stay safe and constantly aware of how dangerous nature can be.
