CUDOS TO EC
Ignace - English River
8:29 PM EDT Monday 26 July 2010
Tornado warning for
Ignace - English River continued

Weather radar at 8:20 PM EDT indicated a severe thunderstorm exhibiting significant rotation. There is the real threat of a brief tornado or two with this storm which is about 50 km east-southeast of Dryden. Motion is southeast around 30 km/h.

This is a warning that severe thunderstorms with tornadoes are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions. Take immediate safety precautions.

Very warm and relatively humid air across Northwestern Ontario is triggering scattered thunderstorm activity across the region. Conditions are favourable for some of these storms to become severe with isolated tornadoes, large hail of 3 centimetres and strong damaging wind gusts to 90 km/h.

Toronto's got a bunch of dopplers. The EC site at King City (you can see the doppler from Hwy. 400), the airport has it's own dopper, Toronto is covered by the NWS Buffalo dopper site (KBUF), and there may be some other private ones...

Every major city in Canada is covered by doppler radar. You can see that almost all of southern Canada is covered here: http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/radar/index_e.html

13 tornado warnings were issued yesterday in Saskatchewan. The warnings are getting real nice! Now include public storm report lines.


==DISCUSSION==
ENVIRONMENT CANADA METEOROLOGISTS ARE TRACKING A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM
CAPABLE OF PRODUCING A TORNADO. THIS SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WILL AFFECT
THE CYPRESS HILLS SOUTH OF GULL LAKE.
AT 6:40 PM CST DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED THAT THIS SEVERE THUNDERSTORM
WAS LOCATED ABOUT 15 KILOMETRES SOUTHEAST OF TOMPKINS AND WAS MOVING
TOWARD THE SOUTHEAST AT 50 KM/H.

IN ADDITION TO THE POSSIBLE TORNADO, THIS SEVERE THUNDERSTORM IS
