didn't realize the watches were posted.......now i have no idea where to go lol.......so many counties under a watch.....looking at the hrrr earlier it seemed like anywhere from extreme sw on all the way up the shore of lake huron had the most cape/shear......the composite reflectivity showed strong cells coming through the goderich area again........

i'm re-thinking going all the way down south now....anybody have a target area picked out yet? any imput would be appreciated.......

There is no such thing as a blanket tornado watch or any watch for that matter. A tornado watch means conditions are favourable for tornadoes which they are. 45-65kt verticle shear, favourable hodograph curvature, strong forcing, destabalization, strong flow at 850mb and 700mb. Wouldnt be surprised to see more than 1 tornado in ontario today
