Well, we were going to take the dog to the park (in Mississauga), but that intense blob on the radar is blobbing its way right for us.

MONDAY..IT APPEARS SURFACE LOW WILL OCCLUDE WITH THE CENTRE
MOVING FROM LAKE SUPERIOR TO NORTHERN QUEBEC. WEAKENED QLCS WILL
SWEEP ACROSS SOUTHERN THEN EASTERN ONTARIO WITH PROBABLY LITTLE
FANFARE. SOME GUSTY WINDS ARE LIKELY BUT GIVEN MARGINAL CAPES AND
UNIDIRECTIONAL SHEAR PROFILES THERE'S A LESSER CHANCE OF SUSTAINED
STRONGER EMBEDDED CELLS. WILL GO WITH APPROACHING SEVERE GIVEN
STRENGTH OF WIND FIELDS AT THIS TIME, BUT IT SEEMS TO BE A RATHER
LOW PROBABILITY.

Yet another amazing storm in the region... quite impressive for early April.

Here is a current supercell over northeastern Lower Michigan that is tornado warned. It peaked at 80dbz just five minutes ago. You can see southwestern Bruce County in the bottom right corner with Tiverton and Port Elgin. It will be interesting to watch how the lake will affect this supercell.

That white diamond is a 4.26" (10cm) hail marker, though only quarter size hail has been reported so far.
Code:
ALCONA MI-
815 PM EDT SUN APR 10 2011

...A TORNADO WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR CENTRAL ALCONA COUNTY
UNTIL 845 PM EDT...

AT 811 PM EDT...NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED A
SEVERE THUNDERSTORM CAPABLE OF PRODUCING A TORNADO.  THIS DANGEROUS
STORM WAS LOCATED 5 MILES NORTHWEST OF BARTON CITY...OR 10 MILES
NORTH OF GLENNIE...MOVING EAST AT 50 MPH.
