Well, according to EC, there is 10-15 centimetres coming to Ottawa Wednesday night and potentially more on Thursday, the 12th. And it looks pretty cold with temps staying in the minus double digits throughout which should really help this snow stick. We've been fairing nicely in Ottawa lately with only snowfalls and small snowstorms lately but the amount of them has really added to Ottawa's snowpack and they have had some intense heavy bands in them which accumulate real quickly. Looking forward to this one, especially that it may be at least a little bigger than the recent snow events.

Here's the warning isssued for Ottawa for intense heat:
3:14 PM EDT Monday 30 June 2014
Heat Warning in effect for:
•Ottawa North - Kanata - Orléans
•Ottawa South - Richmond - Metcalfe
Heat conditions - afternoon to early evening Tuesday.
Hot and humid conditions are expected to peak on Canada Day, with Humidex values reaching 40. An approaching cold front late in the day Tuesday will bring an increased likelihood of showers and thunderstorms. Cooler and less humid conditions are then expected for the remainder of the week.
While extreme heat can put everyone at risk from heat illnesses, health risks are greatest for
- older adults
- infants and young children
- people with chronic illnesses such as breathing difficulties, heart conditions or psychiatric illnesses
- people who work in the heat
- people who exercise in the heat
- people without access to air conditioning and
- homeless people.
Drink plenty of liquids especially water before you feel thirsty to decrease your risk of dehydration. Thirst is not a good indicator of dehydration.
Take a break from the heat by spending a few hours in a cool place. It could be a tree-shaded area, swimming facility or an air-conditioned spot such as a public building, shopping mall, grocery store, place of worship or public library.
Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required, so stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio. Email reports of severe weather to email@example.com or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.

I don't know if it will happen but EC have just issued a snowfall warning for Ottawa for 10-15 cm in just a few hours beginning anytime and ending around midnight. The warning states that it will fall in just a few hours and visibilities will drop to near zero.
I hope this thread is OK, just thought it was very interesting and it came out of nowhere. Let's see what happens.

There is a video (a couple of them) on Youtube that appear to show a tornado briefly touch down in Ottawa in the east end yesterday. Has anybody else seen/heard of this yet? I would have posted the video here but there is foul language in it. It appears to be a very weak tornado but it does touch the ground it seems.
I know in the east end I saw the best clouds of the year yesterday in a thunderstorm that rolled through. Everybody around was watching the storm.
In any case, perform a Youtube search for "Ottawa tornado July 29." It should pop up.

This thread seems about the possibility of some very hot & humid weather for southern and eastern ontario into southern Quebec which should include a heatwave for many as per EC's "3 or more days in-a-row of 32c or higher."
I'm going striclty by the recent forecasts from myforecast for the last several days but they seem to be very consistent with strong heat beginning around the 22nd of this month (this upcoming saturday) straight through until the final day of their 15 day forecast which ends on july 2nd.
Temperatures in their most current forecast (which gets updated every 4 hours or so) have several days in the low and mid 30's with a peak humidex of 50C in Ottawa on Canada day and 55C the day before in Toronto. I don't expect the humidex to reach that level but mid 40's are very possible IMO, maybe even some upper 40's. The coolest the temps are in this period (for daytime highs) are upper 20's.
I'm not conviced yet that the heat will begin as early as the 22nd, at least not widespread, but by next week (last week of june) temps could certainly bump up.
I believe this potential heat was also mentioned in the summer thread.
EDIT: Changed title back to warmspell (heatwave?) as all seems very possible and even likely for some in the east and west.
