Re: May 11, 2015 - Tornado watch issued for Windsor/Sarnia

Odd effect Mississauga, well ahead of storms; greyish and low clouds, moving east-to-west in long tendrils. Stands out against upper level moving west-to-east.

It was not as impressive as hoped for on the ground, but the way everything broke up so quickly here was still very neat.
