The clouds looked a little omnious earlier today but only a little rain and thunder and lightning came out of them in the east end of Ottawa. Nothing int he way of "severe" and definitely not enough rain to change the color of the grass (or should I say straw laugh.gif ).

Didn't heard the thunder and haven't looked much outside, my workplace being in a large office area with 40 people and I had the headsets and music on. I think the rain fell sometime around 12:00-12:30. But at break did notice there was quite a bit of rain that fell and it was much cooler. I did see the darker clouds to the south and east.

Also there were reports of trees down near the Dow's Lake area so I guess in some parts the winds exceeded 70 km/h.

The Airport did get about 15 mm out of this one. The Nexrad did show some storm amounts at around 25 mm in some areas

Mostly disappointing here; a bit of thunder, lightning, strong downpour for 2 minutes (amounting to not much).

Someone on the Weather Channel's FB page mentioned funnel clouds in Nepean. I guess some areas got exciting.
