Photos and Video July 29 Ottawa/Gatineau - confirmed EF0

Hey guys! Havent posted in a bit. Just been so busy but also have been trying to get out as much as I can and track a few storms here and there... Driving from work yesterday I could see that a cell was starting to develop near Aylmer, QC So I headed that way and tracked it all the way to my house in Gatineau. It wasnt a warned cell but it did produce fairly high winds, lots of lightning as well as pea sized to marble sized hail in abundance!! Even caught a crappy picture of a wall cloud with weak rotation to it.. Nothing crazy but good enough for a "suprise" chase.

Heres a few pics. PS: The hail had already started melting when I took the photos.











Turns out a brief funnel that mightve touched down in the east end of Ottawa has been filmed and put on youtube.. Here is the link

Looks like that funnel actually did touch down in Ottawa's east end. It's only rated an EF-0 and took out a few trees on the course, which should make it more playable and forgiving!

==weather event discussion==

Tenth tornado of the season confirmed in Ontario.

Based upon video evidence and a damage inspection in the Ottawa area,
Environment Canada has confirmed the occurrence of the 10th tornado
of the season in Ontario. Near 5 PM on Monday July 29, a funnel cloud
was observed in the blair road area of Ottawa. As the storm moved
across the pine view golf course, intermittent tree damage along a
100 metre wide track occurred. As a result of the damage
investigation the event is being classified as a low end enhanced
Fujita scale (ef-0) tornado with maximum wind speeds at the ground
between 90 and 110 km/h.

The enhanced Fujita scale or ef-scale is divided into six categories
with ef-0 being the weakest and ef-5 being the strongest. On average,
12 tornadoes are verified each year in Ontario during a season that
runs from late April until early October.
