Default Jul.27, 2014 - tornado warning

so the spc has some pretty decent risk levels out for southern Ontario today, but after looking at my maps im skeptical that any of it will actually develop. most of the afternoon and evening have lower than favorable wind shear and CAPE required to generate these severe storms, and I'm thinking the line of cells over northern Michigan wont reach us until later in the evening when all the energy is gone. maybe some light to moderate t-storms this afternoon but I'm thinking its a bust.

any thoughts?

With all this cloud cover, I don't see anything good happening anywhere above London. Also, a watch was just issued.

Multiple Tornado Warnings! Kitchener-Cambridge-Waterloo,

Code:
6:40 PM EDT Sunday 27 July 2014
Tornado warning in effect for:

    Kitchener - Cambridge - Region of Waterloo

Updated or ended by 7:49 p.m. EDT.

At 6:35 PM EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are monitoring a thunderstorm that may be producing a tornado. Reports of a funnel cloud with a possible touchdown near Millbank have been received. Damaging winds, large hail and torrential rain are also accompanying this thunderstorm.

This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. If you hear a roaring sound or see a funnel cloud, swirling debris near the ground, flying debris, or any threatening weather approaching, take shelter immediately.

Go indoors to a room on the lowest floor, away from outside walls and windows, such as a basement, bathroom, stairwell or interior closet. Leave mobile homes, vehicles, tents, trailers and other temporary or free-standing shelter, and move to a strong building if you can. As a last resort, lie in a low spot and protect your head from flying debris.

In Canada, lightning kills up to 10 people every year.
Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors.

Emergency Management Ontario recommends that you take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required, so stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio. Email reports of severe weather to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.

    Guelph - Erin - Southern Wellington County

Updated or ended by 8:39 p.m. EDT.

At 6:40 PM EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking an area of thunderstorms stretching from near Stratford to east of Cambridge. The main threat with these thunderstorms is torrential rainfall giving in excess of 50 millimetres. Large hail and damaging winds may also accompany these thunderstorms.

Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Fast moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Avoid driving through water on roads. In Canada, lightning kills up to 10 people every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors.

Emergency Management Ontario recommends that you take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches.

From the Newton Ontario area at around 6:30pm.

If anyone could tell me how to get the Exeter feed from that time & location, I'd love to see what this looked like on the radar imagery.
