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.

Not sure what to really expect but since it's late in the season, one last shot of a snowstorm would be nice. Myforecast is showing a big to major snowstorm for areas in southern and eastern ontario and southern Quebec in this timeframe.
Ottawa is currently at over 30cm, Toronto 25cm+, about the same in Montreal of about 25cm+, etc...
I suppose this may be something to follow over the coming days to see what (if anything) transpires.

I guess I'll start my first "storm" related thread for some snow that is being forecasted by EC and TWN especially. TWN have 5-10 cm for Ottawa and Montreal on thursday, the 3rd, and the snow may linger a little bit to the 4th. Toronto currently only have flurries and a cm or so as per TWN/ EC has straight "snow" for Ottawa on the 3rd and periods of snow for Montreal on the same date.
We'll see how this unfolds over the next couple oof days. Would be nice to add this to Ottawa's (and Montreal's) impressive snow cover.
And happy new year to everyone! Here's hoping 2013 brings us all lot's of snow!
