This, coupled with WDIV's Chuck Gaidica even stating "if the storms fire up.....", makes me wonder if anything like happen at all.

I know the conditions seem very ripe for some big time storms to fire up, but with the NWS/SPC not even issuing a watch..... I trust them 99 times out of 100 over anything EC puts out. Heck, yesterday they had a forecast hi of 34 in Windsor, and then dropped it down to 31..... can't really trust them too much.
Your in Windsor, Im in Belle River. I've been watching Detroit weather, and weather network and both keep saying if these storms fire up and organize we could see severe weather.

hey TJ what about the twister though my home town in midland last year on june 23rd? i remember watching the weather most of the day and it was raining hard for about an hour before the tornado, i didn't even know one was imminent until i was locking up the shop (workin a little later) and looked south...obviously i dropped what i was doing and didnt run inside to check, as soon as i determined it wasnt coming for me i followed it, but man it felt like that one snuck up on us. on a good note, chasing it for about 10 minutes was the most exciting weather thing i've ever done, didnt get any good pictures though :/

Why is that tornado warning in effect for Lambton County? That's a new low for EC.
