Potential is there for a couple isolated tornadoes in northwestern Ontario this evening. EC has posted a large tornado watch for just about all of northwest Ontario and the western shore of Lake Superior. A couple intense storms already, but no tornado warnings yet. Down in the Northern Plains/Upper Lakes of the USA could be a strong tornado today.

TORNADO WATCH FOR:
CITY OF THUNDER BAY
KENORA - NESTOR FALLS
DRYDEN - IGNACE
FORT FRANCES - RAINY LAKE
ATIKOKAN - UPSALA - QUETICO
SUPERIOR WEST
RED LAKE - EAR FALLS
SIOUX LOOKOUT - SAVANT LAKE
LAKE NIPIGON - WABAKIMI
GERALDTON - LONGLAC - CARAMAT
NIPIGON - MARATHON - SUPERIOR NORTH.

==DISCUSSION==
SCATTERED STRONG THUNDERSTORMS ARE DEVELOPING IN NORTHWESTERN ONTARIO
AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT WHICH WILL CROSS THE REGION THIS EVENING. A FEW
OF THESE STORMS MAY BECOME SEVERE WITH CONDITIONS BECOMING MORE
FAVOURABLE FOR ISOLATED TORNADOES. LARGE HAIL TO 2 CENTIMETRES AND
BRIEF WIND GUSTS TO 90 KM/H ARE ALSO POSSIBLE. THE THREAT IS EXPECTED
TO END A LITTLE LATER THIS EVENING AS THE COLD FRONT PASSES THROUGH.

Would pay top dollar to experience something like it :whistling:

The tornado threat was expected to develop with a chance of strong tornadoes over the Upper Lakes region of the USA, but once again capping won and once thunderstorms began to explode, the cold front had caught up and everything turned linear almost instantaneously. Good news for the folks out that way. Though, everyone out there is almost guaranteed to experience the MCS. There's a myth or urban legend amongst chasers and meteorologists that I hear often, not to sure of its validity, but it goes something like 'a previous day bust or underwhelming event can lead to a more active event downstream'.

I'm starting work early tomorrow
to be done by 3. Hopefully things
dont happen too quickly. I think it would be justice at this point for someone elses bust to be our boom. There's only one type of bust I'm interested in seeing for the rest of the season and they come in 2's. I'd be happy if we got smoked by a big fat MCS like that one tomorrow the way things are goin this year...
