Ok, yesterday's forecast said thunderstorms. I wake up today and it's a beautiful day and the forecast says mainly sunny.

Please tell me my tax dollars aren't paying someone to do this.

Look at those storms in Michigan! A severe thunderstorm watch is issued for much of Michigan.

Edit: Severe thunderstorm watch was just issued for Bruce and Grey County.

nothing much happening in niagara falls, although the wind direction has changed now, and seems to be coming from the north west, and is bringing in some grey cloud cover. doubtful of any storm action with this cover, but we can hope!

In downtown Toronto. Just looked out the window and it's looking nasty just north of here! Hoping we get some of the action.
