more action for the north, some of the fringe may dip into the south though.

Code:
Warnings

1:34 PM EDT Tuesday 22 July 2014
Severe thunderstorm warning in effect for:

    Blind River - Thessalon

Updated or ended by 2:10 p.m. EDT.

At 1:34 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm capable of producing strong wind gusts, quarter to toonie size hail and heavy rain.

The line of thunderstorms is located from east of Wawa to Whitefish Bay is tracking east at about 60 km/h.

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.

We had a week or two with a few decent storms. Nothing severe, but still beats what was happening before and what is happening now. I had a feeling this year would be bad after the winter.

looks like im in luck, the southern tip of the system is going to hit me after all

Code:
7:52 PM EDT Tuesday 22 July 2014
Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for:

    Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale
    Midland - Coldwater - Orr Lake
    Orillia - Lagoon City - Washago

Severe thunderstorm conditions possible - early evening to late evening.

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts and heavy rain.

Fast moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away. 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. Stay indoors when a thunderstorm strikes. There isn't a place outside that is safe during a thunderstorm. Stay away from all windows, skylights and doors. 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.
