Holy rain! Just about 50mm of rain throughout Kitchener in about 30-45 minutes starting around 4pm. I've never seen the ground outside my window literally flood. Usually it can handle downpours, even when the roads can't. There's flooding all over the city, especially at Fairview Mall.

You guys have a Fairview Mall TOO!? Great... more confusion

Although the Fairview Mall in St. Catharines was the first enclosed mall in Canada :P (from what I read)

Don't forget about the Fairview Mall in Toronto at Hwy's 404 and 401!

Myself and Andrew Colvin headed down to the clear slot in the SW ahead of the front and decided on a cell outside of Bothwell that had clear air to it's South and a healthy inflow velocity return on KDTX. It at first looked like junk but that changed fast as the rear updraft exploded vertically and the entire base lowered (Thanks to low LCLs which were evident on Buffalos soundings in the morning) eventually forming a massive rotating wall cloud. It attempted to produce but was unable to over the open fields outside of Glencoe and went on to die out SW of London.

We than went to Port Burwell and waited for the shelf cloud to stack up as it approached Lake Erie.
