Most of the storms once they pass Windsor appear to weaken to showers. Not sure we will see anything more than rain for London. Fingers crossed we see something!

Once again, Environment Canada hasn't issued so much as a Severe Thunderstorm Watch despite it looking pretty good for some severe weather in the southwest.

Today at 11:30 in Chatham we had a pretty good downpour that lasted for 45 minutes. I measured around 35 mm of rain in that time period meaning we were *just* under the threshold to be classified as a severe thunderstorm. Still a good soaker though - considering the 30 mm we got on Monday, we're had yet another incredibly rainy month.

It's pretty cloudy outside but humid - don't know if we'll get enough instability for anything more than a non-severe storm. Fingers crossed!

edit: looks like a nice line of thunderstorms setting up over southeastern michigan, per radar.

Ya I don' Know what is up with EC.. looking at what the SPC is saying we could get some good storms in Southwestern Ontario with the warm front that is pushing in and good wind shear.

Looks like I may be wrong on the storms dissipating - love it when a plan comes together! laugh.gif

Oh man. The skies are darkening to my north and a nice line of storms is right on my doorstep. Starting to get very gusty outside as well.

We've already had more than 30 mm of rain today, and TWN says we might get another 50 mm. Areas with poor drainage are completely soaked - the parking lot at our school is flooded with six inches of water. And it looks like more to come. I love severe weather but this is the worst year for farmers I can remember in my entire life. sad.gif

TWN also thinks there's a good chance for hail.

I think most of the storms are done for my area now. There's still a lot of thunder but the rain is mostly done.

We had a nice downpour with lots of thunder and lightning but other than that it was pretty much a garden-variety severe storm. Not that I'm complaining, because those are still nice to see. Picked up a good 30 mm of rain in about half an hour.

Some really cool looking clouds right before the storm hit, too.

Wow, what a day. Tornado reports all over the Midwest, including some in Ohio. We're at over 60 reports for today in the states, and there's still a long way to go before this outbreak fizzles out.

We're had about 55 mm of rain at my house from the storm. A friend in Chatham is saying they're getting close to 80 mm since this morning. Roads and yards are flooding like crazy... hearing a lot of reports of water creeping up to car doors and whatnot. And if it's supposed to rain all through the night... ugh. Too much!

Drove back form Montreal today (two day excursion).

401 from K/W west was extremely slow-going with all the heavy rain, some lightning but nothing extreme. The rain though was impressive, fields around here look like lakes right now.

Correct me if I'm wrong...did EC drop the warnings for southern Ontario?

Thanks!

The Severe Thunderstorm Watches for the southwest were dropped several hours ago. I don't think there were ever any Warnings put up. We were pretty borderline today whether we actually needed a warning or not.

edit: Actually, I just checked and EC issued some rainfall warnings for Chatham-Kent, Essex and Lambton. The rain stopped a while ago but it was definitely warranted. They're very vague in their description however.

I can't remember so many rainfall warnings in one spring before. This rain got old months ago. At least it's WARM rain now, instead of that *bleep* we kept getting in March and April.

Unrelated to the current storms, but temperatures are going to SOAR next week. From Sunday to Tuesday, we could be seeing humidex values in the 35-40 degree range for many. Get ready for some nice beach weather!

Same here in Mississauga. Quite a lot of thunder and lightning for such low radar reflectivities. I think something in my neighbourhood was even struck because I saw a very bright flash nearby and almost right away a loud rumble shook the house. A siren started going off at the same time. Not sure from where, but it alternated between an ambulance sound, a police sound, and a fire alarm sound. It stopped after a minute or so.

Rain just let up here. Not nearly as much as regions in the SW. I measured 23mm here since yesterday.

We're under a severe thunderstorm watch and there is a tornado watch just across the St. Lawrence river here for St. Lawrence County, New York.

So far, the radar is showing the nasty stuff south of the river.
