there is a chance that some storms maybe sever will start in Ontario tonight and continue until Saturday.

if the MCS that is in the mid-west US continues east tonight it should make for an interesting evening in Southern Ontario.

This is coming in along a warm front which should bump up the temps and dew points for tomorrow and maybe saturday.

the folling is a write up from EC.

Discussion of thunderstorm potential.

Today..Scattered non severe thunderstorms are expected across

slight risk these storms may be severe with torrential downpours as
the main concern. There is a lesser risk of isolated large hail or

likely across Far Northern Ontario.

eastward across Southwestern Ontario to Niagara or the Golden
Horseshoe in the morning. There is a slight risk that these storms
may be severe with torrential downpours, large hail, damaging winds.
Scattered thunderstorms are likely to regenerate over Southwestern
Ontario towards the Golden Horseshoe Friday afternoon. There

Indeed, I am looking for this large MCS to move through southern Ontario somewhat slowly in the overnight into the morning with possible high winds, and a less likelier but still a chance for hail and the isolated tornado, then we may have short destabilization period with some sun, before a possible second round of storms tomorrow afternoon-evening. I think Saturday though could be a more significant day for strong-severe storms, with high shear(conducive for strong winds), fairly high EHI values(which could be/would be conducive for tornadoes), fairly decent CAPE values(instability), high dewpoints(into the 70's F likely), high 0-1km and 0-3km helicity(which would also be conducive for strong winds). Could be an interesting 48-72 hours! wink.gif

Looking at the radar, nothing looks impressive, the rain looks light with a bit of some heavy downpours possible. From what i have seen it doesn't look like anything significant will happen as EC suggested

EC was wrong, the heaviest rain turned out to be further north in a band from Goderich and Kinkardine west to Lake Simcoe. Here at my house, 15KM WNW of Alliston, I recorded 40 mm of rain that came down between midnight and 7am . Mount Forest got it even worse with 56mm! The GTA received 20 to 30mm on average with the SW reporting very scattered amounts.

EC issued a special weather statement this morning confirming this, and warned for the risk of severe thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon and evening which are capable of producing tornadoes.

At 8am the humidex in London was 37c.. 40c in Windsor. I can't even see out the windows in the house since they are fogged up on the outside from it being so warm in humid. its going to be a muggy one today the sun is already starting to peek out. any place that has AC their windows have water just running down the outside from the condensation. dew-points around 8am at 24-25c. in Southwestern Ontario looks like we could get some good storms today and tomorrow.

From EC for the SW today
Today..Scattered non severe thunderstorms over south Central Ontario
this morning.
Isolated thunderstorms over Southwestern Ontario today and tonight.
A few of these storms could be locally severe due damaging winds and
large hail during the afternoon and evening hours with an isolated
tornado not to be ruled out. Elsewhere isolated non severe
thunderstorms.

Ya EC messed it up big time, they had the Southwest under a rainfall warning and while we did get some rain and some of it came down heavy at times, we didn't even get close to what they were saying. It is really humid out, windows here are also fogged up

Kitchener had a huge thunderstorm pass over it at 8am today.....Heavy amounts of rain (the sod field was flooded with 6" puddles when I left it and that all accumulated in less than 10 min) Bright lightning (sheet and many lightning strikes and lots of thunder! From about 5am till 8 am it was hot out and quite muggy...
Kitchener/Waterloo had reported flooding on many streets, cars were hydro plaining and couple cars landed in the ditch

Ok who's ready for round 2? I am!

So here in Toronto we got into that extreme humidity shortly after I wrote my last comment! We were up to 31C and an amazing humidex of 44C!!!!!! Temps have back off about 4 degrees as the we have clouded over in the past couple of hours.

That kind of humidity warrants some major t-storm action!!!

Dewpoints were at there highest I can remember since August 1, 2006? We had a 25C dewpoint in the afternoon.
