Get ready for another wild weather day! Huge storms already on their way, with tonnes of potential during the day. Should be exciting. and i hope the energy they predicted for tomorrow holds after this swath of moisture runs through.

Rainfall warning for
Atikokan - Shebandowan - Quetico Park continued

Heavy rain today.

Severe thunderstorm watch. Thunderstorms developing along a warm front just south of the international border have the potential to become severe. The main threat with these storms would be large hail and torrential downpours. Damaging winds are a lesser threat. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out either.

Rainfall warning. Showers and thunderstorms tracking along the warm front have given rainfall amounts over 50 mm in some areas. The rain is expected to continue for much of the day contributing to rainfall amounts ranging from 50 to 70 mm across the region.

The rain should taper off from west to east beginning early this afternoon for the Fort Frances area.

New warning up:

Windsor - Leamington - Essex County
1:18 PM EDT Thursday 18 July 2013
Severe thunderstorm warning for
Windsor - Leamington - Essex County issued

At 1:10 pm EDT, meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm capable of producing large hail, damaging winds and heavy downpours. Rainfall at 50 mm in less than one hour, hail to 2 cm and frequent lightning are expected with this storm over the Detroit river moving slowly towards Windsor.

Communities in the path include: Windsor.

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.

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 2:30 PM EDT.

Tornado warning for
Orangeville - Grand Valley - Southern Dufferin County upgraded from Severe thunderstorm warning

At 2:10 pm EDT, meteorologists are tracking a dangerous thunderstorm that is capable of producing a tornado.

Storm spotters have reported a funnel cloud just north of Orangeville and it is moving to the south or southeast at 30 km/h.

Communities in the path include: Orangeville, Caledon.

This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation.

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

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.

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.
