Cristobal is likely to show up here at any moment now. The sump pump is ready for action, but high winds/tornadoes are a concern.

nice...where you at, Snoopy?
MA. This was around the Cisco campus, which is completely deserted (though even without a pandemic, the parking lots are barely half-full anyways.) Here are a few more. It's a really nice area.

Forecast is for more thunderstorms today.

Woah it just started randomly raining pretty hard. 15C out right now.

I need to bring my truck to the shop to fix the AC... which I don't think I'll be needing for a while lol. Was going to walk back but might pass on that. I'll bring it later and get a ride from someone.

Been hot the last few days and supposedly again today before rain moves in this evening.

Worst thing is that the wiring in my apartment is on the sketchy side (VERY old building) plus the battery in my UPS just kicked the bucket. Can't install/run my bedroom AC and my computer at the same time till its replaced without blowing the power out.

round 2 of thunderstorms about to start here. Sky is very dark and the wind just stopped.

not a good omen.

EDIT: the wind just started up again in the opposite direction. :eek:

I always like a good thunderstorm. Seems we don't get as many as we used to.

I miss the thunderboomers. Grew up in Springfield Mass as a youngster...got quite a few there...best ones were when we lived in the Rockies. We might get one or two small ones per year here.

So thunderstorms apparently have an eye? :cool:

Actually I don't see why not if the cell is big enough.

Having crazy winds here, but sunny and warm, it's a very odd thing. It was comical going outside with my hair untied. It was just all over the place.

Looking at national radar there appear to be several nasty storms and a possible bow-echo southwest of Toronto. These look to be part of a front moving SW to NE.

Also one wicked looking storm which looks to have a slight rotation moving NE over central PA.

Thunderstorms are going through here now. I am west of Toronto and east of Detroit.

The wind always gets weird as thunderstorms approach. Giant heat pumps they are.

The temp has dropped nearly 10 degrees in 20 minutes. Was 29C and now 20C.

Thunderstorms lift 500 million kilograms of water vapor into themselves.

We just got issued a Tornado Warning:

Tornado warning in effect for:

  • London - Parkhill - Eastern Middlesex County
At 8:46 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm that is possibly producing a tornado. Damaging winds, large hail and locally intense rainfall are also possible.

Tornado just southeast of Dorchester may reach the Ingersoll area by 9.15 PM.

This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. If you hear a roaring sound or see a funnel cloud, swirling debris near the ground, flying debris, or any threatening weather approaching, take shelter immediately.

Go indoors to a room on the lowest floor, away from outside walls and windows, such as a basement, bathroom, stairwell or interior closet. Leave mobile homes, vehicles, tents, trailers and other temporary or free-standing shelter, and move to a strong building if you can. As a last resort, lie in a low spot and protect your head from flying debris.

Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!

Tornado warnings are issued when imminent or occurring thunderstorms are likely to produce or are producing tornadoes.

The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management recommends that you take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

Stay safe. :eek:

With the winds and crazy weather we're having here I imagine it's even worse down south. Oddly enough no thunderstorms at all here, just wind and occasional rainfall.

PNW "Juneuary" continues. Highs here in the upper 50's
to low 60's for the foreseeable future.

We had 2 confirmed tornado touchdowns last night.

One was just south of Dorchester which is just south of London.

The other was south of Belmont which is about 20 KM southwest of London.

I so wanted to see the destructive power of a tornado on a old house or something from a distance, i hear its quite the ride. I had one though nearly touch down, all i could remember was all the near by trees swirling in circles. That was intense, big pieces of branches and stuff landed all over the neighborhood but it never touched down. Oddly was VERY quiet.

A prior relationship had me in Arkansas for 6 years, i never got to see a tornado. The gf turned wife got stuck in a few with her cousin though, but i managed to dodge every single one. I kinda miss it out there,especially the southern part. The Northwest part was Walmart land with a museum. Weather wasn't as exciting up there either lol.

Curious about where you're at to have 2 touch down, dayum.
