Anyone care to discuss the possibility of strong thunderstorms this weekend across the great lakes? Brett seems to think they will be severe and with this humidity and the approaching cold front, it spells nasty to me. I don't know enough about the models so I'm hoping someone can enlighten us!

Thanks,

All of Southern Ontario has been placed under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch. I expect this evening to be an interesting one weather-wise. The video and still cameras are nearby and ready to go.

Storm clouds rolling into Richmond Hill right now. Loud thunder and lightning, and the rain hasn't even started yet.

I'm looking at what appears to be a lowering cloud in my back yard - rotating and all. Looks like it's trying to grow a funnel, too.

This is not surprising. The radar is really scaring me right now and I'm surprised, even as a precaution, EC hasn't issued a tornado warning for the cell near Vaughan right now.

Those storms were violent.... Newmarket got a killer of a storm around midnight, the sky was purple when the lightning flashed and I'm sure something got it because the thunder just exploded. Even the dog started crying. I don't think we got hail, but a lot of rain. It was scary. I would like to have seen the radar for that time. A house in King Township got hit and burned to the ground and a man is in critical cond. after being hit...... what a night.

If the models are to be believed, watch for flooding in eastern Ontario...

both the GFS and NAM show huge rains coming in Saturday night across South Central and Eastern Ontario. They are both saying 50+mm with some amounts over 100mm. I will believe it when I see it.

Here is the 48h NAM from midnight tonight to midnight Sunday. It shows areas between Toronto and Barrie getting hammered with rain, extending ENE towards Ottawa.

EC has a special weather statement for SW and S Ontario , about as far north as Alliston and Innisfil with expected rainfall amounts of 30-40mm. Areas along the Lake Erie shoreline will see over 50mm and are under a heavy rainfall warning. Thunderstorms will increase amounts in areas affected. EC also said there is a chance the system could move more north which would see the warnings expanded.
