Blow off tops of the London Woodstock cells passed over Niagara around 8:30pm but were dry with some slight mammatus and layering. The profile of the Barrie/Innisfil storms looks impressive and equally long trailing blow off tops. Lightning visible in those billowing cumulus.

The tornado south of Sudbury creeped into French River and a tornado warning was issued for West Nipissing - French River. It was south of me but we got hit with a line of severe thunderstorms.

I watched the storm passing by Barrie from the roof of my building - what a great light show! I got a few decent photos and video; I'll upload them shortly.

What a pleasant surprise, i wasn't even expecting anything serious today but i noticed the cell heading to barrie just in time to grab my gear and hit the road . i think i got some excellent sunset t-storm photos and video of the light show after dark. I'll post as soon as i stitch them together. Just got back about an hour ago.

Here it is, hope you like it :)


I had my head in the garage all weekend renovating and didn't even realize until the afternoon that there might be a chance of fun. As I'm working away I hear the rumble of thunder, checked the radar immediately, saw the warnings up in London area and two separate cells heading right towards me. (the cells i'm talking about are the ones that passed over Collingwood and Barrie, and the one that passed slightly north of Midland not the ones by London if it sounded like that) quickly grabbed my camera and put some stuff in my garage and there we go. I find it funny: when I look for severe storms and tornadoes i never find them, but if i don't pay attention for a couple of days they roll right over me :rolleyes:

Hi, I stumbled on this site after googling storm warnings for the Sudbury area in 2013. I live about 30 km southwest of Sudbury and was attempting to open up our snowmobile trail in December which runs southwest of my place toward Lake Penage. The trail crosses a small isolated lake called Reef Lake, and was completely blocked by a huge tree fall on the southwest shore of Reef. We spent days cutting through this mess. There were several spots along the shore of the lake that sustained massive tree damage. The pictures don't do it justice. The one picture shows the area when I first arrived, the second a few days later after we started to clear the big white and red pines.

The radar echo hook you posted plots quite close to this area. It is very remote, and essentially only accessible by snowmobile in the winter. Luckily, it is isolated and people were not around when the storm hit last June. I remember tracking the storm on Environment Canada radar, as I was worried it would be close to our house. Turns out this tornado or microburst was only 20km away.
