  1. Tornado just hit SE Barrie. Residential neighbourhood, some cars and trailers flipped, at least one house pushed off its foundation, people reportedly trapped. Environment Canada didnt have this Tornado warned. Storm Chasers on Twitter realized the danger and started trying to contact them immediately
  2. Just like winter (February) in about 3-4 weeks ill start getting excited about that lower sun angle, cooler nights ect..
  3. went from drought to non-stop rain and clouds.
  4. One of the more sneaky heatwaves for the GTA. Wasn't a lot of discussion but all of a sudden its going to be 3 straight days above 30C (86F). Got up around 90F across most of the GTA today while Im up in Owen Sound/Tobermory and it never got above 70F at my construction site haha. Shows how close the cooler air.
  5. I work seasonal construction and I can start to notice subtle changes before most (helps I also enjoy weather haha) I think you pretty much nailed august. I wake up at 5am daily and currently dont need any lights on by the time im downstairs. It will stay this way for a few more weeks until I realize I need the kitchen light on ect.. August is the first subtle hints at fall approaching. Toronto rarely sees 40s or even lower 50s for about 45-60 days in mid summer. Most nights from now until Mid august is 55-60F and above. After mid August though is when we get that first 49F and you can feel it in the air that the seasons are getting ready to change. Mid August-Mid October is one of my favourite times of the year for that. Still summer type weather most days but the first cool shots and leaves changing begins
  6. Toronto is experiencing this as well. The overnight temperatures and overall UHI is really noticeable. The current government is on the path to suburbanize more of our green belt https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenbelt_(Golden_Horseshoe) for anyone interested
  7. Well had very minor symptoms so small I didnt think anything of it. Just chalked it up to working outside, but the fiancé got similar run down feeling yesterday morning and she works from home so out of an abundance of caution because I work construction with others we got tested. Came back positive today. The vaccine for both of us is booked for May 24 weekend so still might be able to make that.
  8. haha please take some from the eastern Great Lakes. Two weeks straight now of snow/rain. I haven't seen a fully dry days in about 15 days.
  9. 82F in Detroit right now and sunny while its 58F and cloudy in Toronto. Its crazy that from a public perceptions this spring will now get added to the list of failed/slow springs. Even though it was anything but. Its crazy what two weeks of rain and one late April snowstorm will do to the general publics idea of spring
  10. looks like by mid week the western part of the sub gets to enjoy what the far eastern side has been seeing for days now. 50s and 60s with lows in the 30s and 40s. The warmth never really got past Detroit. Its currently 82F and sunny in Detroit but 58F and off and on rain in Toronto
  11. ya, May looks to be a dumpster fire for the eastern lakes. Paying now for the nice march and first two weeks of April.
  12. crazy. Nothing but rain (wet snow possible friday night) here in the eastern Great Lakes the next 14 days. The drought is essentially over in WNY and Southern Ontario
  13. ? The extended for Southern Ontario and Michigan/WNY is garbage. Luckily its been a god spring so the next 10-14 days of non-stop showers and rain isnt that bad.
  14. Sorry, just seeing this now. Ya, a few places reported 15-20cm with I believe even one report saying 22cm. I think its safe to say the western end of the escarpment saw widespread 8-13cm and the eastern side towards US saw 13-17cm. A few of those 20-22cm I think are very local.
  15. 11cm or just a bit over 4". I live in Caledonia about 15km south of downtown Hamilton and have elevation to help. A meteorologist from Ancaster about 10km from me reported the same amount so safe to say most of Hamilton Mountain saw around 4"
  16. Im not a big fan snow after March 15th but I cant turn down a once in 20 year snow event across the GTA (For after April 20th) and one of the biggest in my area so late in the season.
  17. one of the biggest snowfalls ever so late in the Niagara Region. I measured around 4"
  18. Pretty interesting and fascinating that Im tracking a possible historic snowstorm. Even if 4-8" fall it will be gone within 12-36 hours. By friday were back to the 50s and sun The weather nerd in me would love 60F on Monday with a winter storm watch, 31F Tuesday night with 4-8" of snow 35F Wednesday with wet snow, 55F and sunny Friday. If you somehow only looked outside monday and friday you would never know a snowstorm happened haha
  19. full on shutdown in Ontario. Closing our borders with Manitoba and Quebec, no golf, tennis, playgrounds, camping, parks, ect.. police can stop and ask you why you left your house. Though there is a case to be made that Ontario is most likely why WNY has the highest covid in the State. Plus Michigan is in rough shape and they've already said its most likely Ontario that caused Michigans problems.
  20. haha this would be actual winter storm watch level for Southern Ontario.
  21. Ya, for most of Southern Ontario we use our May long weekend as the official end of frost season. Planting before happens, but almost every May 1-15th features some area of Southern Ontario getting around 28-32F. Im okay with 55F and sunny conditions and 35F at night. Not a big fan of 40s and rain but that happens every year in April so I expect those to be mixed in. Heck, 40s and rain even happens in May sometimes.
  22. Irony is that Canadas only MLB team which is the exact opposite culturally of Texas beat them on their home opener haha. Wasn't even really a close game.
  23. While I guess thats true I also wore a mask today for 2+ hours while mixing cement and grinding. We have to get fit tested and everything for those masks. So while a tiny portion may actually feel like they cant breath, if a tiny "piece of fabric" disrupts your breathing pretty sure you should see a doctor and find out why. Theres no reason you should have trouble breathing with that on.
