Photos and Video Aug.7, 2013 - mini tornado outbreak / severe thunderstorms

Looks like a patch of severe weather could hit us tommorow evening. There is a good level of shear present in the later hours as well as free convection. MLCAPE values are up but nothing crazy. I think around 7-10pm will be the hours to watch. I think most of the excitement will still be south of the border because of the short window of opportunity but fingers crossed anyway.

I hope something develops in northeastern Ontario.

I would like to see some good storms Wednesday. One of my boys was born on August 7th during a thunderstorm.

Easy to remember his birthday...on the anniversary of the Woodstock tornado of '79.

Here is the SPC's forcast for significant tornadoes for today, nothing crazy but it does cover a larger area. EC does mention the threat of a tornado east of georgian bay in their watch all the way to ottawa...hey wait i'm barely east of georgian bay... . i can see the wind shear today is already considerable and expected to increase as the system moves in. If the free convection numbers drop enough in the next 3-6 hours we could see some fun, particularly near collingwood and eastward.
