There's a large watch up for all of Eastern Michigan, which extends into most of SW Ontario and part of NE Ontario. http://weather.gc.ca/warnings/index_e.html?prov=son

There's also this custom risk map by Adam Skinner and his team at Ontario Tornado Watch. https://www.facebook.com/ Their forecasts are amazing. They've often predicted tornados days in advance, and they get the word out, with accuracy, before EC even seems to know about the storm!

Here in KW, we had a lot of cloud this morning, but that cleared a bit by noon, but mostly cloudy skies are dominating still. There's a clearing on its way, so hopefully that keeps the fuel going.

Anyone have thoughts? Predictions? Going chasing?

I'm staying put. Nothing on radar except for a cell between Toronto and Belleville. BRUTALLY humid out today. I've got the day off and am spending in inside with the a/c. :P

radar is showing a very distinct wind shear pattern around collingwood, a strong gust front for sure, hard to say if theres rotation because of the multicell line. i think im intercepting this west of moonstone.

All done here now. that was a great storm. Tonnes of lightning, a decent gust front, knocked a few small trees down on hwy 93 and 12. and my god, the rain, pretty close to 40mm by my house in Victoria harbour.

things looked really intense for newmarket about 40 minutes ago, any reports from that area?
