Ontario weather forecast predicts rotating storms today and tornadoes are possible


An impending heat wave has Ontario’s weather forecast calling for another nasty mess of severe storms on Thursday with a risk of tornadoes.

According to The Weather Network (TWN), a wave of intense heat and humidity will develop across the province on Thursday, creating widespread instability and thunderstorm activity.

Ontarians living in or visiting cottages will need to be better prepared for potentially hazardous conditions, with areas like Timmins and Moosonee most at risk.

Even the most intrepid storm watchers will want to refrain, as experts warn there is enough wind shear in the atmosphere to cause storms to organize into supercells.

The spinning thunderstorm pattern could produce an unpleasant combination of hail, heavy rain, and possibly one or more tornadoes. So you’ll want to make sure you have a decent shelter to stay in when the going gets tough.

Southern Ontario will avoid the most dangerous weather conditions. However, the heat spike will likely force residents to limit time spent outdoors and begin a short-term relationship with their air conditioner.

Areas such as Elgin County, Windsor – Essex and London – Middlesex could see daytime temperatures hit a scorching 32 degrees on Thursday, leading to several heat warnings being issued.

“The risks are greatest for young children, pregnant women, the elderly, people with chronic illnesses and people who work or exercise outdoors,” warns Environment Canada. “Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place.

In conclusion, you won’t have to hide indoors all day, especially if you live in the south, but it is necessary to take the necessary precautions.
