July 6th - Severe Thunderstorm
A tropical airmass had been hovering over Southern Ontario for about 3 days, bringing the temperatures (humidex) as high as 48C (118.4F) here in St. Catharines, and even up to 49C in other places. Then a minor cold front came through triggering off severe weather. CAPE values were over 2000 and lifted indices were -5 to -7, but the front was pretty weak, but still set off some active weather.
