Photos and Video Jun.17, 2014: Angus -> EF2 Barrie tornado + Stroud EF1 tornado

I don't want to jinx anything, but at this moment (10 a.m.) E.C. has a special weather statement out, TWN has a few stories out and the SPC has us in the slight category.
Currently there are some storms in Bruce/Grey counties with more over Michigan. This day could be quite interesting.

Good luck to those chasing today! I will be here in Barrie, observing...

Code:
6:12 AM EDT Tuesday 17 June 2014
 Special weather statement in effect for: 
•Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale
 •Midland - Coldwater - Orr Lake
 •Orillia - Lagoon City - Washago
 
Severe thunderstorms possible later today.

A fairly potent disturbance is approaching Southern Ontario from the west, with showers and thunderstorms affecting parts of the us midwest into lower Michigan.

A warm and humid airmass will be in place across the regions today, with afternoon temperatures peaking in the upper twenties to lower thirties, and humidex values in the mid to possibly upper 30S.

As this disturbance gets closer, showers and thunderstorms will spread into Southern Ontario this afternoon. Heavy downpours, frequent lightning and gusty winds will probably be associated with many of the thunderstorms.

Latest indications suggest that conditions may become favourable for some of the thunderstorms to become severe this afternoon into this evening. The main threats will be torrential downpours, damaging winds and large hail. Environment Canada is closely monitoring this situation. Watches and warnings may be issued as required later today as this event draws closer.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

 Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for: 
•Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale
 •Midland - Coldwater - Orr Lake
 •Orillia - Lagoon City - Washago
 
Severe thunderstorm conditions possible - late morning to evening.

Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, damaging hail and heavy rain. There is also a risk of a tornado.

The threat of severe thunderstorms exists until this evening.

Very large hail can damage property, break windows, dent vehicles and cause serious 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. Be prepared for severe weather. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. 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 storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.

I have been so right in my predictions by using experience and data lately that I have to call this one out..I've been saying on #onstorm that there's likely a squall line event coming off lake huron...Chris Scott tweeted me back with a bit of an explanation but likely doubting the setup..and...
looks like I'm about to be right again

I've even circled the spots on the maps by judging the nasa satellite loop by seeing here storms will light up..and have been right so many times..giving me a lot of confidence in my ability to understand where and when a storm will form.

So
In before squall line *cough august 2nd 2006 anyone?* forms over lake huron and blasts through southern ontario

Default Re: Tues. June 17, 2014

another warning up regarding the line moving in off lake ontario now,

I see the setup i think your refereing to Raedwulf, i have been sceptical because of the low convection models i saw earlier for that timeframe but i am seeing some cells toward the bottom end of that line starting to organize, as well my model suggests perhaps another wave forming afterward towards the overnight period with a good swath sweeping across southwestern ontario. my confidence in my outlook though is low, id say 30% because im expecting this first wave to take away a lot of potential energy from the system, I hope im underestimating it.

Code:
Warnings

1:02 PM EDT Tuesday 17 June 2014
Severe thunderstorm warning in effect for:

    Bruce Peninsula - Sauble Beach - Tobermory
    Hanover - Dundalk - Southern Grey County
    Owen Sound - Blue Mountains - Northern Grey County
    Saugeen Shores - Kincardine - Southern Bruce County

Updated or ended by 3:01 p.m. EDT.

A developing line of storms over Lake Huron will cross the regions this afternoon with heavy rain, wind gusts to 100 kilometres per hour and damaging hail 2 to 4 centimetres in diameter possible.

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 storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.

Here we go:

Code:
2:23 PM EDT Tuesday 17 June 2014
Tornado watch in effect for: 
•Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale

Tornado conditions possible - afternoon to early evening.

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms which may produce tornadoes.

Sev ere storms will develop rapidly this afternoon with the potential to become dangerous due to strong winds, large hail and there is the possibility of a few tornadoes.

Be prepared for severe weather. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches.

In the event of a tornado, or if a tornado warning is issued for your area, it is recommended you take the following actions: Go indoors to a room on the lowest floor, away from outside walls and windows, such as a basement, bathroom, stairwell or interior closet. Leave mobile homes, vehicles, tents, trailers and other temporary or free-standing shelter, and move to a strong building if you can. As a last resort, lie in a low spot and protect your head from flying debris.

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 storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.
