Nice line of storms forming North of Toronto - seem to be moving to the SW. Not a single watch/warning from EC.

I'm just south of the 401 in Mississauga: Dark skies to the north and continuous thunder, but can't see the lightning.

The best are North of Mississauga and Milton right now; they seem to all be passing over Bramptom.

Not every little cell gets a warning. There are criteria which must be met before it's considered severe enough that it's probably going to be dangerous. These are itty bitty little cells nothing special..no good power
