At 2:42 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm capable of producing very strong wind gusts, dime to nickel size hail and torrential rain.

Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Fast moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away. Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Go indoors and move away from windows and skylights. Avoid areas of the building that could be affected by falling debris such as tree limbs. Avoid driving through water on roads. Watch for possible washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts. In Canada, lightning kills up to 10 people every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors.

Emergency Management Ontario recommends that you take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required, so stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio. Email reports of severe weather to [email address] or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.

There's quite a lot of rotation on the storm moving just north of Oshawa. EC should really put a warning up on that storm.

two cells to watch right now are the one between keswick and newmarket, and the one south of port perry.

first one has decent rotation through the lower levels, but nothing to crazy yet, the port perry storm is showing defined rotation through the upper levels but nothing major at the surface yet, both cells have potential though.

beat me to the post stormy dude, lol. but yes i defintely see it


[edit]
I took a screen cap of the 1.50 deg from king city, you can really see it there, but the 0 deg scan is still muddled
