Mature Cyclone in NW Ontario as u can see the circulation, this is a once in 20 year event low is only 995mbs but very unusual for this time of year and is 4 - 5 standard deviations of normal, Lake Effect showers now coming off Lake Michigan in the SW flow and much cooler temps, thought everyone would find this interesting!!!!

Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and torrential rain. Thunderstorms are expected to develop later this morning or this afternoon. Rainfall amounts of 50 mm or more will be possible with thunderstorms, especially for regions that receive multiple thunderstorms. Thunderstorms will end with the passage of a cold front today.

August is really giving us a kick as it leaves. We had very high winds on Saturday but no damage.

We could use more rain- though preferably between midnight and six in the morning when I don't have to walk in it!
