This spring reminds me of the spring of 2003. That year we had some warm days early then never seemed to warm up during spring. Then, in the middle of June it was full on summer heat, don't recall any major severe outbreaks in ontario though.

Here is what Darksky has for 2003 http://www.ontariostorms.com/showthread.php?t=213

2003 was a decent summer heat and storm wise. There wasn't any big outbreaks of severe weather but that is usually how it goes any given year. The active pattern through April across the USA was very reminiscent of late April through mid May 2003 with back-to-back-to-back outbreaks. Seems to have quieted down now, but looks like the storm machine is about to spring back to life. If Summer 2011 is similar to summer 2003, I'm all for it.

For sure. With record april tornadoes and the month of May on average being a more active month we will have to see what happens. Also it appears that 2003 was a good storm season for us. I think i remember a good storm from that year but not sure if it was 02 or 03.
