30 minutes ago it was perfectly calm outside... now the outflow winds are gusty and powerful. I can see lightning in the distance.

That's crazy! I started a fire in the wood cookstove to drive off the damp this afternoon. The fire was hot enough to bake a batch of muffins! What a difference.


I see lightning to the northwest of me now. Hopefully we get some rain too. smile.gif

Rumbles starting in Hamilton. The second band looks way stronger on radar.

Orangeville is reporting severe flooding (this area is not near a lake nor is low so flooding is quite rare) due to the heavy amounts of rain today. The area is reporting over 100mm of rain which has fallen today, some locations over 130mm. The main street of Orangeville is literally a river, with parking lots turning into lakes. Quite a site seeing all the pics.

I have measured 65mm of rain at my house today which is enough in itself. Local fields are flooded, as are low locales. The grass will love this!

The storms were not that powerful here but they were cool nonetheless. It stormed almost continuously from around 9:30 pm to well into the middle of the night, past 2:00 am, as we had four rounds blow through. The torrential rains must have approached severe levels at times but I don't think that our storms were ever severe. Overall we ended up with around 30 mm of rain, though some places like Flint, Michigan ended up with over 120 mm.

The lightning was the most impressive part of last night. It was never frequent (probably 7-8 flashes per minute at its peak) but there was lots of C2C and C2G lightning to watch.
