Re: Aug.4, 2017 - Tornado warnings

That's pretty good for Niagara Falls! When I was living near there, I don't think I ever saw a shelf cloud even once.

Re: Friday, August 4th Storm Potential

Southern Niagara is pretty flat, but as soon as you get into the Northern Part, you hit the escarpment which is basically nothing but hills and trees, though it tends to get better storms. I would...

Re: Friday, August 4th Storm Potential

No surprise that Eastern Ontario has the best shot for severe weather. It's been like that for the last few years from what I've observed.

These recent days have been nice for the slow moving pop...

Re: July 12th - thought?

I'm not too confident in today. US SPC shifted the risk south this morning and it's already cloudy out. Also, there's a large area of rain moving into Michigan that I can only imagine will kill any...

Re: Jun.17, 2017 - tornado warnings

Was at Canada's Wonderland on Saturday when the tornado warned storm hit. Wasn't severe in terms of wind and there was no hail, but it sure rained a ton.

By the way, roller coasters are a...

Re: May 30th storms

Kitchener's bubble is working overtime today. All the storms that I see moving in are weakening. Still a lot of lightning and rain in them though.

In all seriousness though, these are very...

Re: May 18th, 2017

Conditions look pretty favourable from the ground. Lots of low level wind, lots of sun, lots of humidity. The clouds are moving from the west but the wind is from the southwest, so looks like we have...

Re: Apr.30, 2017 - tstorms

Looks like a powerful bow echo there. Was there any strong wind at all in the storm?

April 27, 2017

Looking pretty nice today. Lots of sun, and a cold front sweeping through today. The wind is coming from the southEAST right now, unusual, but still a south wind. Anyone know what the CAPE is and if...

Re: Snow anyone?

This is easily the stormiest February I've ever seen! Seems like every week there's a storm threat. I will not complain! We had snow in KW before winter. Then Christmas rolled in and it was almost...

I hear Reed Timmer is going to be chasing in the area today. That's how good the storms could be.

Holy rain! Just about 50mm of rain throughout Kitchener in about 30-45 minutes starting around 4pm. I've never seen the ground outside my window literally flood. Usually it can handle downpours, even...

Re: Aug 13th 2016

The Kitchener storm was pretty good. Lasted a LONG time with some gusty winds and almost non stop heavy rain. So far I've only found one small tree branch, so damage is minimal.

Re: Fourth tornado of the season confirmed.

LOL! That IS incredibly small. It's practically just a strong dust devil with a funnel.

Re: Possible Tornado near London

There was some rotation in a storm over Kitchener today. Sort of hanging clouds, but nothing funnel shaped. Was really cool, till I got the crap scared out of me by a close lightning bolt. Others on...

Re: August 5th - Cold Front Arrival

Rained in KW around 2. No lightning. And then of course all storms stayed south or north. At least there have been storms in the last few weeks.

Re: July 21 2016

I'm sure there'll be some late afternoon storms in Northeastern Ontario, but I think for Southern Ontario, the timing is more late evening and overnight. Still, that line over Minnesota/Wisconsin...

Re: July 18, 2016

And now the risk is only for Eastern Ontario. Storms will be overnight, if they even have enough energy to form at this point.

Friday and Saturday look interesting. Lots of heat. Maybe lots of...
