Default Friday, May 4, 2018 - Severe Thunderstorm Threat

Severe Thunderstorm Watches were just issued.



By the way, does anyone know how to post an image to here on a Mac? I don't want to have to keep posting links to an image.

The 'Insert Image' icon not working (the little yellow square)? Never mind - that's for the URL.

Maybe clicking the 'Go Advanced' option and then insert a JPEG attachment?

The first one worked fine. Unfortunately, the new link updated to the new map with all the wind warnings! Oh well. The watch extends from Goderich, over to Kitchener and then north, away from the lakeshore and Toronto, to Peterborough, and up to Haliburton. Then it goes back toward Bracebridge and south along the Georgian Bay and Lake Huron shorelines, excluding the Bruce Peninsula.

Edit: The watch has been extended from Brantford to London.

Most agree that the main tornado threat extends from Listowel and over through Eastern Ontario, south of Ottawa. But all areas have a threat of course.

Severe Thunderstorm Warnings have just been issued for:

- Sarnia - Petrolia - Western Lambton County
- Watford - Pinery Park - Eastern Lambton County
- Chatham-Kent - Rondeau Park
- Windsor - Leamington - Essex County

Edit: Windsor airport recording a gust of 93 km/h. Another Edit: Make that 111 km/h.

Winds here in St. Catharines right now are very high. Almost all the street lights at intersections were out on my drive home from work. Tree branches down.

I can only imagine what it would have been like if there were leaves on the trees!
