Real rare to have a severe thunderstorm watch in effect in the middle of october for Ottawa. Not complaing, however! They may be the next best thing to a big snowstorm.

Wow! This definitely came out of nowhere for eastern Ontario. I expected non-severe storms at best for most of the province.

There's a long line of heavy storms making a beeline for Ottawa. A lot of rain associated with them - flooding seems likely.

There was some flooding across several areas of Ottawa, namely the area near the General Hospital, along St-Laurent Blvd as well as in South Keys and Barrhaven.

Speaking of snow check out the new thread I`ve created tonight.

There was a lot of sun in Ottawa today and it was pretty warm at about 22C, however, Ottawa wasn't supposed to get any sun today according to the morning forecast as well as yesterday's forecast. I'm sure that sun fueled the thunderstorms to make them get to the levels they got to. In my area in eastern Ottawa, while we didn't get it as bad as the west end of Ottawa and even some parts of eastern Ottawa, we still got a very heavy downpour at 3:00 pm which lasted for about 10-15 minutes. I assure you, the rare october severe thunderstorm warning for Ottawa was warranted and not just for my area but for most/all of Ottawa, especially the areas where flooding occured. The clouds at about 2:20 pm were just amazingly dark, at least as dark as the summer thunderstorms. It was an awesome sight.
