Default Jun.24, 2014: EF1 tornados in New Tecomseth and Laurel Station

Severe T-storm watches up for much of south central ontario.


Code:
10:47 AM EDT Tuesday 24 June 2014
Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for:

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

Severe thunderstorm conditions possible - early afternoon to late evening.

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

Fast moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away. Hail and strong wind gusts are also possible. 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.

interesting wind patterns down by clinton, lots of shear along the leading edge of the storms and some decent rotation inward, this could bring a warning if it keeps getting stronger, also one of the embeded rotating cells has an estimated top of 31,000 ft.

warnings issued:

Code:
3:38 PM EDT Tuesday 24 June 2014
Severe thunderstorm warning in effect for:

    Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale

Updated or ended by 5:37 p.m. EDT.

At 3:38 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a cluster of severe thunderstorms capable of producing strong wind gusts and heavy rain.

These thunderstorms are currently in an area extending from south of Shelbourne northeastward to Lake Simcoe and are moving northeastward at about 50 km/h. Communities that are affected by more than one thunderstorm could receive in excess of 50 mm of rainfall. Some of these thunderstorms may also be capable of producing wind gusts to 90 km/h.

Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. 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. Large hail can damage property and cause injury. 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.

Default North Glengarry tornado June 24th

The Boys from Quebec Vortex were out chasing in my area and managed to intercept this nice brief touchdown just south of Hawksburry in North Glengarry township.

Heres the video:
