Tue. Sep.4 - Storms today
 
Some nice big reds on radar passing through NE of Toronto right now. Not only would today be the first storm day in a long time (for here in St. Catharines at least, but many other areas I'm sure), but also the first day of RAIN in who knows how long. Truthfully I cannot remember the last time it rained. I know maybe 1-2 weeks ago we had some, and it was probably a month before that that our 2nd last time of rain occurred.

The one good thing is that you don't have to mow the lawns! :o

But hopefully it'll be more than rain and Mother Nature can jog my memory of what a thunderstorm is like.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING ENDED FOR:
      CITY OF TORONTO
      MISSISSAUGA - BRAMPTON
      CALEDON
      VAUGHAN - RICHMOND HILL - MARKHAM.

      THE THUNDERSTORM WHICH TRACKED NORTHWEST OF TORONTO HAS

      LOCALIZED REPORTS RANGING FROM 30 TO 50 MM OVER A SHORT

 ==DISCUSSION==
 A SLOW MOVING COLD FRONT IS PRODUCING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS OVER
 A LARGE SWATH OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO.  THE AIRMASS IS QUITE UNSTABLE AND
 A NUMBER OF THE MORE INTENSE THUNDERSTORMS ARE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING
 HEAVY DOWNPOURS WITH RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 50 MM IN ONE HOUR.

Rainfall warning was cool. Certainly saw the impacts with flooded streams and paths in the park behind my house.
