All watches and warnings in southern Ontario have come to an end.

Special weather statements and wind warnings covered London-Middlesex through Huron-Perth and parts of Sarnia-Lambton.

High winds did blow through London causing trees to come down in several areas.

Thousands of London Hydro customers were without power but the utility company is working to get all customers restored.

“There is the chance for showers and thunderstorms early in the afternoon,” said CTV News London meteorologist Julie Atchison. “Some instability, but not a wash as we head through the day.”

Looking ahead to the next seven days, Atchison said we can expect some fluctuation in temperatures.
