Seems like those cells that were moving out over lake Huron from Michigan earlier have mostly started fizzling out, real shame . Like tice said, conditions were likely to strengthen those storms. Oh well, but I guess we have tomorrow, that's when the real storms will hit.

yeah, they do look dissapointing now, but convection was capped over the water where its not on land because of the moisture content, i still have a shred of hope that they will pick up again as they cross ontario, but not enough to chase after them tonight. I'm preparing my gear for tommorow though. i plan to finish work at 2:30, i hope thats early enough to stay in the game *fingers crossed*

New Severe thunderstorm warning for
Plevna - Sharbot Lake - Western Lanark County - Kaladar - Bannockburn - Bon Echo Park issued

8:20 PM EDT Thursday 18 July 2013


At 8:20 pm DT, meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm capable of producing large hail, damaging winds and heavy downpours.

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

Strong wind gusts and hail can damage property and cause injuries. Local downpours can cause flash floods.

Go indoors and move away from windows and skylights. Avoid areas of the building that could be affected by falling debris such as tree limbs. Stay on the lower floor of your home or building and if the storm is particularly severe go to the basement.

Avoid driving through water on roads. Even shallow fast moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away.

Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes.

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

For more information:
http://www.emergencymanagementontari...eprepared.html .

Environment Canada continues to monitor the situation closely. Stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio for further updates. If you would like to report severe weather, you can send an email to [email address].

Updated or ended by 9:30 PM EDT.
