I don't want to jinx anything, but at this moment (10 a.m.) E.C. has a special weather statement out, TWN has a few stories out and the SPC has us in the slight category.
Currently there are some storms in Bruce/Grey counties with more over Michigan. This day could be quite interesting.

Good luck to those chasing today! I will be here in Barrie, observing...:smile:

Special weather statement in effect for:
•Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale
•Midland - Coldwater - Orr Lake
•Orillia - Lagoon City - Washago

Severe thunderstorms possible later today.

A fairly potent disturbance is approaching Southern Ontario from the west, with showers and thunderstorms affecting parts of the us midwest into lower Michigan.

A warm and humid airmass will be in place across the regions today, with afternoon temperatures peaking in the upper twenties to lower thirties, and humidex values in the mid to possibly upper 30S.

As this disturbance gets closer, showers and thunderstorms will spread into Southern Ontario this afternoon. Heavy downpours, frequent lightning and gusty winds will probably be associated with many of the thunderstorms.

Latest indications suggest that conditions may become favourable for some of the thunderstorms to become severe this afternoon into this evening. The main threats will be torrential downpours, damaging winds and large hail. Environment Canada is closely monitoring this situation. Watches and warnings may be issued as required later today as this event draws closer.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for:
•Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale
•Midland - Coldwater - Orr Lake
•Orillia - Lagoon City - Washago

Severe thunderstorm conditions possible - late morning to evening.

Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, damaging hail and heavy rain. There is also a risk of a tornado.

The threat of severe thunderstorms exists until this evening.

Very large hail can damage property, break windows, dent vehicles and cause serious injury. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Be prepared for severe weather. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. In Canada, lightning kills up to 10 people every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors.

Emergency Management Ontario recommends that you take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required, so stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio. Email reports of severe weather to storm.ontario@<hidden> or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.

I have been so right in my predictions by using experience and data lately that I have to call this one out..I've been saying on #onstorm that there's likely a squall line event coming off lake huron...Chris Scott tweeted me back with a bit of an explanation but likely doubting the setup..and...
looks like I'm about to be right again :D

I've even circled the spots on the maps by judging the nasa satellite loop by seeing here storms will light up..and have been right so many times..giving me a lot of confidence in my ability to understand where and when a storm will form.

So
In before squall line *cough august 2nd 2006 anyone?* forms over lake huron and blasts through southern ontario

tice23
06-17-2014, 01:40 PM
another warning up regarding the line moving in off lake ontario now,

I see the setup i think your refereing to Raedwulf, i have been sceptical because of the low convection models i saw earlier for that timeframe but i am seeing some cells toward the bottom end of that line starting to organize, as well my model suggests perhaps another wave forming afterward towards the overnight period with a good swath sweeping across southwestern ontario. my confidence in my outlook though is low, id say 30% because im expecting this first wave to take away a lot of potential energy from the system, I hope im underestimating it.

Warnings

1:02 PM EDT Tuesday 17 June 2014
Severe thunderstorm warning in effect for:

Bruce Peninsula - Sauble Beach - Tobermory
Hanover - Dundalk - Southern Grey County
Owen Sound - Blue Mountains - Northern Grey County
Saugeen Shores - Kincardine - Southern Bruce County

Updated or ended by 3:01 p.m. EDT.

A developing line of storms over Lake Huron will cross the regions this afternoon with heavy rain, wind gusts to 100 kilometres per hour and damaging hail 2 to 4 centimetres in diameter possible.

Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Fast moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away. Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Go indoors and move away from windows and skylights. Avoid areas of the building that could be affected by falling debris such as tree limbs. Avoid driving through water on roads. Watch for possible washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts. In Canada, lightning kills up to 10 people every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors.

That was an exciting swath of weather, spotted a very clearly rotating wall cloud at 4:44 associated with the cell that prompted the prior warning for the Midland area, had to relocate for safety, sadly i was to busy calling it in and trying to get to a better location to get a picture, then the second cell coming through had straight line winds, probably only 70-80km gust but it did topple this tree branch, also had a close lightning strike as that wave went through, struck some HVAC stuff on top of our local mall while i was at a nearby intersection maybe 50m away.

At least my kids know what to do in tornadoes...we were in the basement in Burlington on Aug. 24, 2011 and then yesterday.:o

It was a very humbling experience to walk down the streets of Angus last night looking for family members...my kids have a new appreciation for my weather interests. I am so glad no one was seriously hurt.

I wish I had a better camera to capture the storm... I saw rotation and saw debris (even though my video on youtube isn't as clear as original) the sky turned greenish - then we went downstairs. Close call. There was even damage in my neighborhood in Barrie (southwest area).

Updated weather summary for Southern Ontario and the
National Capital Region issued by Environment Canada
At 12:08 P.M. EDT Wednesday 18 June 2014.

Third tornado of the season with a track from Angus to Barrie.

A cold front spawned a number of strong to severe thunderstorms
Tuesday across Southern Ontario. A tornado was confirmed to have
occurred in Angus near 5:20 PM Tuesday. Based on weather radar
information, this tornado tracked from Angus east to the mapleview
drive area south of kempenfelt bay in Barrie by about 5:35 PM.

Survey teams returned to Angus and Barrie today and rated the worst
damage as consistent with a high end ef-2 tornado, having estimated
wind speeds of 200 to 220 km/h.

In addition, the thunderstorms brought sudden very heavy downpours,
strong, gusty winds, and frequent lightning to many areas. There
Were also reports of funnel clouds from trained spotters in the
highway 401 and 403 areas near Woodstock Tuesday afternoon. Another
trained spotter reported a possible tornado north of Walkerton and
Hanover early Tuesday afternoon, but to date no damage reports have
