Default June 11th forecast looks interesting

Any thoughts on timing or best areas to get some decent storm photos?

The SPC in the states has been calling this for four days already but now some models are in disagreement about timing and location. Will it be worth getting out for?

Hard to say at this point. I've been keeping my eye on it, with the current position of the outlook area it favors early afternoon and they seem to agree on south eastward moving storms. but that could change a fair bit since its 3 days out. A few times this year the systems have sped up or slowed down considerably in the last 24hrs on approach. That being said I think the Windsor-London corridor will likely be the most active area in this for Ontario. Hopefully i don't have to work OT this weekend and can get out for some fun

Things seem to be looking good as of tonight. EC and TWN are somewhat in agreement as well.

happy to report this year...a (newer) second vehicle instead of a rusting mini-van to get out this year...all I need is a new camera.

Be safe.

Well Kitchener already go their one good storm of the year on May 29, so stay away from there! :P But really, I hear the last time the SPC predicted our area getting severe storms 6 days in advance was for the July 19, 2013 outbreak, though that prediction was also a lot more widespread from what I remember. It's going to be a hit and miss day probably so chasing will be necessary unless you get lucky or live in London. Hopefully the first round which is expected early early Saturday stops by mid morning and the sun comes out soon after.

At this point it looks as if widespread early convection might suck energy out of the atmosphere for storms later in the afternoon...though tomorrow has been notoriously hard to predict. Hopefully the GTA will get something

well, the spc forcast looks less favorable now. we just had our wave of storms pass through super early (its 4am here) and other than some close cloud to ground lightning it wasn't very eventful. Everything seems to have shifted southward leaving us with 5% wind and hail probabilities.

darn.

Well that was the biggest bust I've ever seen. From what I remember, even when storms are possible, there are at least a COUPLE, even if they're weak. Today, not a drop of rain in sight. Only around Eastern Pennsylvania saw storms that I noticed, and they sure weren't severe. Does anyone else remember a bust this widespread?
