- A strong cold front was forecast to
sweep over southern Ontario on July 19th and it brought with
it countless severe thunderstorm watches and warnings and also
quite a few tornado warnings. Numerous very fast moving storms
fired up ahead of the front and raced east. The storms were moving
so fast that it was impossible to keep up with them, so we had
no choice but to just get out in front of them as they would
approach, then reposition for the next round of storms.
- We did most of our storm chasing in
the Mount Forest - Minto - Palmerston area, then re-positioned
to Oakville where the lightning over Lake Ontario was spectacular.
- There were many reports of wind damage,
trees downed and power outages, plus several funnel clouds reported.
Many thanks to today's chase partners Mark Robinson and Cindy
Burgess. We also teamed up with Dave Patrick & Ian Archibald.
