In a 1:15 p.m. release, the federal agency said favourable conditions increased the likelihood of storms capable of producing strong wind gust, large hail, and heavy rain.

The storms are expected to develop this afternoon and will diminish later this evening.

If threatening weather approaches, be prepared to take cover immediately.
