Severe Thunderstorm Risk; Brief Cool-Down; Another Blast of Heat…

Conditions will become favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms for a large area across Southwestern, Southern, Central and Eastern Ontario for Thursday, July 5th.

What to Expect
With continued rising temperatures, high dew-points, and daytime heating, a weak front will slice through the aforementioned regions and provide enough instability to bring-about some severe thunderstorms later in the day on Thursday.

While the dynamics are not entirely conducive to significant supercell development, a lack of shear, ultimately, will mitigate rapid intensification and development. The primary risk therefore, with these thunderstorms, will be quick flooding rains (25-50mm).

The greatest threat for severe thunderstorms will likely occur just east of Lake Huron, but likely 15-20km west of the major 401 corridor. The GTA and QEW should remain non-severe (overall) and regions around Cottage Country should receive rain showers.

1 or 2 severe thunderstorms on the northern edge of Lake Ontario cannot be ruled out.

Cool-Down
A brief / slight cool-down (24-27C; less humid; and drier conditions), will arrive for the aforementioned regions on/for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

What’s Next?
From te brief cool-down outlined above, temperatures are expected to rebound back into the upper 20s and low 30s for the next severel weeks (avg: 29-32C). This time around however, conditions will be less humid than the more recent surge of warmth.

As outlined in our summer prediction, isolated severe thunderstorms will continue across Ontario and Quebec for much of the summer.

Long-Range Outlook: Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.
Continued above normal temperatures and relatively dry conditions are still expected for Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. There is some potential for record-breaking heat once again somewhere in the last few days of July into early August for about a week.

Remember, summer thunderstorm forecasts  – severe and/or non-severe – represent a plausible scenario based on extensive weather calculations, parameters and up-to-date atmospheric data. Nothing is for certain, but outlines a possible or likely scenario based on the aforementioned points.

Please stay tuned, as we at TCW are monitoring this situation attentively.

Isolated Severe Storms Slice Humidity in Ontario & Quebec

Scattered thunderstorms are expected across the lower half of Southern Ontario and Southwestern Quebec today (July 2nd, 2018).

A weak cold front will slowly track across Southern ON/SQUE today acting as a trigger for thunderstorms. The frontal passage is not expected to offer much relief from the heat, but will lower humidity to more comfortable levels tonight and Tuesday.

The primary risk with these thunderstorms will be torrential rainfall. Due to slow movement of the frontal passage some thunderstorms may “train” or, regenerate over the same region bringing locally 30-50mm in a short period of time. Additionally, isolated damaging winds are possible – primarily in Eastern Ontario and Southwest Quebec where the greatest risk for severe exists. Small hail between pea and dime size is possible in the more robust updrafts across the entire isolated severe risk zone.

The timing for storm development today, will be between 11am-6pm. We have highlighted localized municipalities – stretching from the Golden Horseshoe into Eastern Ontario in a isolated severe threat.

Manitoba

Heavy Thunderstorms Expected in Southeastern Prairies

Widespread heavy to severe thunderstorms likely late this evening – continuing into the overnight hours in Southern Manitoba and Southeastern Saskatchewan. 

 

A stationary front this afternoon in Northern Dakota will separate warm, moist air south of the international border, with warm, drier air in Southern Manitoba. Along this front, there is a risk of isolated severe storms in North Dakota this afternoon – staying stateside. 

A deepening system out of Rockies will trigger severe thunderstorms stateside and a second, more significant/widespread risk of thunderstorms this evening/overnight.

Environment Canada (PASPC) Thunderstorm Outlook. Valid 12pm Thursday to 6am Friday. Highlighting the risk for severe thunderstorms. Note: these forecast maps are still experimental and are not currently operational on Environment Canadas website. 

A second wave which is forecast to develop late in the day, stateside, is the one we are watching closely. Moist and unstable air creeps across the border into Southeastern Saskatchewan and Southern Manitoba this evening. The northern extent of the second wave is expected to cross the international border into Southeast Saskatchewan and Southern Manitoba sometime around midnight. 

There is still some uncertainty regarding evolution and timing of this convective complex. Such complexes also known as MCSs or MCCs – Mesoscale Convective Complex; are notorious for producing intense frequent lightning, flash flooding, and damaging to destructive winds. Large hail is also a possibility, during the initial storm development.

The risk moves out of Southeastern Manitoba into Northwestern Ontario pre-dawn Friday into Friday morning.

We will be monitoring the situation attentively into this evening and overnight.

June 30 and July 1: Extreme Humidex Values to…

Humidex values across parts of Ontario this weekend are ‘all set’ to arrive for millions this weekend – just in time for Canada-Day festivities. This will be one of the hottest Canada-Day’s in years.

 

Across Southwestern and Southern Ontario, the hottest of the two days will be on Saturday with humidex values into the 40s; regions north of Toronto and extreme Southwestern Ontario will ultimately top the mid 40s.

Across Eastern Ontario, such as the Ottawa-Valley, the hottest of the two days will be on Sunday, with humidex values nearing the upper 40s to potentially 50C in some regions. Records will certainly be broken by the end of Sunday.

Temperatures across a multitude of regions this weekend will be in the neighbourhood of 32-36C with certain regions in the Ottawa-Valley potentially reaching 37-38C.

If you plan on enjoying the weekend heat – or Canada-Day/weekend festivities – remain hydrated and be fully cognisant of all potential heat exhaustion signs to prevent heat stroke.

Look-out for one another.

Be safe and have an incredible Canada Day!

After this weekend, temperatures will cool slightly but remain consistently warm for quite some-time. Watch for drought-like conditions for Ontario and Quebec for the remainder of the summer, overall, with intermittent periods of isolated severe thunderstorms.

Updated Summer Forecast: Heat Expected to Dominate Ontario, Manitoba…


2018 Canada Summer Outlook and Higlights Depicted Below —- July and August

Key Highlights

– Heat Builds for Northern, Southwestern, Southern, Central and Eastern Ontario and Southern Quebec Beginning June 29th.

– Many Canadians are Expected to Receive a Warm or Hot July 1st (Canada Day!).

– Unusually Dry for Ontario and Quebec.

– Intermittent Rounds of Isolated Severe Thunderstorms for MB, ON, and QC.

– Decently Warm for SK and AB; Some Periods of Very Warm to Hot Weather.

– Wet BC Coast; Warmer and Drier Interior.

– Newfoundland and Labrador Likely to be Disappointed this Summer Due to Cooler and Wetter Conditions.

– ‘Bone-Dry’ for the Yukon, NWT, and Nunavut.

*Some Potential for Record-Breaking Heat (the Upper 30s) for Parts of ON and Parts of QC for the Last Week of July or 1st Week of August.

Brief Discussion

We at TCW are expecting overall, the country to be slightly above seasonal for the majority of the two months. We expect consistent heat to surge into Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. While the heat will be slightly less humid as is typical, the heat will be quite consistent for the months of July and August.

It is expected that Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec will be quite dry for these two months, but, become inundated with intermittent days of isolated severe thunderstorms as a result of day-time heating.

The Maritimes are expected to warm-up as the summer progresses, while Newfoundland and Labrador is expected to remain cool and somewhat wet.

Saskatchewan and Alberta will have a few periods of hot weather (especially Saskatchewan), however temperatures will overall, be more warm to very-warm than hot.

British Columbia will remain seasonal and wet near the immediate coast, with the interior being drier and a few degrees above seasonal.

The Yukon, NWT and Nunavut will be slightly above seasonal and very dry.

Severe Thunderstorm Risk Builds in Southern Ontario

Showers and a risk of severe thunderstorms for Southern Ontario. Heavy rainfall from East of Lake Superior to the Quebec border Wednesday (June 13th, 2018).

A strengthening low pressure system will track East of Lake Superior through the Nickel Belt Wednesday, bringing a risk for heavy rainfall for Northern Ontario and a risk of severe thunderstorms in Southern Ontario. 

WHAT’S EXPECTED 

A swath near the low track, from East of Lake Superior to the Quebec border will likely see rainfall amounts of 25-50mm between Wednesday morning to evening. 

Further south, across Southern Ontario – there will be 2 rounds of precipitation. The first, along a warm front as it edges north into Southwestern Ontario, bringing scattered showers Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning. Once the warm front moves north, there will be a clearing allowing for sunny breaks and energy to build ahead of a cold front acting as a trigger for thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon. Some of these thunderstorms may be severe with damaging winds as the primary threat.

A window for a low tornado threat is possible from mid to late afternoon in our red highlighted area. The greatest threat will be along a “triple-point” – between 1pm and 6pm. This region may expand to include municipalities near the Lake Ontario shoreline. 

Environment Canada (OSPC) is calling for a “moderate” risk of severe thunderstorms. The primary threats according to their risk map is damaging winds up to 100km/h. Please note: these maps are still in the experimental stage. 

STRONG WINDS

After the passage of the cold front the low will continue to deepen as it moves into Quebec. Strong wrap around winds will develop Wednesday evening and overnight. Gusts between 60-80km/h are expected across much of Southwestern, and South-central Ontario. Localized gusts to 90km/h are possible in higher elevation South of Georgian Bay, as well as, near the lakeshore. 

Ontario

The Remnants of Tropical Storm Alberto Approach the Great…

Alberto has been blamed for flash flooding, mudslides and power outages in parts of the Southern United States. The remnants of Alberto will churn into Michigan this evening – increasing humidity readings and creating unsettled conditions for Southern Ontario, beginning late this evening.

High dew-point values will envelop much of Southern Ontario Wednesday through Thursday. Overnight lows near or above 20C Wednesday night, coupled with dew-points in the high teens, will lead to stifling conditions in doors for residences without air-conditioning or central-air.

High humidity with temperatures in the middle to high teens will act as fuel for Thunderstorms Wednesday night in Southwestern Ontario – with a widespread risk for Thursday morning through evening for the rest of Southern Ontario.

The remnant low of Tropical Storm Alberto will act as a trigger Wednesday night and Thursday. As the remnant low approaches Michigan, bands of showers and thunderstorms will wrap around the low.

What is left of Tropical Storm Alberto as it churns north – towards Michigan. Still displaying well defined circulation and heavy rainfall. 

On Thursday, the low will coalesce will a cold front and get absorbed by the Jet-stream. Upper-level energy and a cold front is expected to act as a trigger for widespread thunderstorms, some of which could turn severe. The primary risk with any thunderstorms that develop Thursday will be torrential rainfall and gusty winds. We will be watching Southwestern Ontario where rainfall could be an issue with minor flooding concerns.

A secondary cold front passage is expected Friday – which may act as a trigger for another round of thunderstorms. Again, rainfall will be the primary concern. Small hail is also a possibility.

It’s important to note, the next couple days aren’t expected to be a wash-out for everyone. Some locales may only see a few millimetres of rain. Whereas other locales, who receive several rounds of thunderstorms or training thunderstorms, could see locally 50mm or more.

Some solace from the humidity is expected by Saturday. Temperatures return to normal with brilliant sunshine and no humidity.

NORTHERN ONTARIO

A deep-layer of tropical moisture will move well north into Canada. Reaching as far North as James Bay and Northern Quebec. Heavy rainfall is expected along a boundary between Lake Superior and James Bay continuing into Northern Quebec. Totals rainfall amounts between 40-75mm are expected in the next 48 hours in the region.

Ontario

Thunderstorms, Locally Heavy Rainfall & Frequent Lightning for Southern…

Rain and thunderstorms expected early Tuesday (May 15, 2018) in Southern Ontario.

A complex of rain and thunderstorms is developing this hour in the Midwestern United States. This weather system is expected to push East late this evening, bringing widespread rain and thunderstorms after midnight.

Ahead of this system, humidity levels will increase – with temperatures into the high teens lingering late this evening and overnight.

TIMING:

Windsor to Goderich approximately 1am Tuesday.

Port Rowan to K/W to Shelburne approximately 3am Tuesday.

GTA to Barrieapproximately 4am Tuesday.

Peterborough to Eastern Ontarioafter 5am Tuesday.

Kingston to Ottawa approximately 9am Tuesday.

IMPACTS:

Heavy rainfall and frequent lightning for communities impacted by the complex of rainfall and thunderstorms tonight. A lessor threat for small hail and gusty winds also exists.

Due to already saturated soil, and rainfall intensity, a Special Weather Statement has been issued north of Lake Erie.

Rainfall totals between 20-40mm is expected north of Lake Erie. Locally, up to 50mm is possible. Elsewhere, expect 15+mm.

First Noteworthy Severe Thunderstorm Risk in Ontario for 2018


For the first time in the 2018 season, a risk of widespread thunderstorms across Ontario could occur on Friday, May 4th, 2018 – some potentially severe.

Synopsis
During Friday morning, many regions across Southwestern, Southern and Central Ontario will experience widespread moderate rain: an isolated non-severe thunderstorm cannot be ruled out. As the morning and day progresses, conditions will become drier, sunny at times, more humid and potentially lead to some severe thunderstorms. The severe thunderstorms that do occur will bring mainly a wind threat.

A somewhat secondary line of isolated severe thunderstorms could also sweep into eastern sections of the Niagara region as a linear set-up of storms will form near upstate Pennsylvania and western New York state; where this line of storms exactly forms will be incredibly relevant for this region. Should it form quickly and near the CAN/USA border (as current atmospheric parameters suggest), the region will be impacted; a formation more eastwards will reduce the risk and impact substantially, to virtually nil.

Potential Severe-Threat Timing
Afternoon to early evening from west to east.

Scientific Analysis
The greatest risk for isolated severe thunderstorms can be depicted in the ‘darker orange region’.
A slight risk for isolated severe thunderstorms can be depicted in the ‘lighter orange region’.
Mainly non-severe thunderstorms can be depicted in the ‘yellow region’. One or two severe thunderstorms cannot be ruled out in this region, particularly along HWY 402, HWY 403 near Brantford and HWY 401 near the London-Woodstock corridor. Later on Friday, it is possible along eastern sections (ex. Kingston to Brockville and 50-60km east of Ottawa), an isolated severe thunderstorm is also possible.

Sufficient atmospheric energy at the immediate surface, as well as, 100mb and 300mb above the surface (SB, ML and MU CAPE) could be adequate to lead to severe thunderstorms. While energy is not astronomically high, and lower in comparison to the more traditional summer months, relatively strong dynamic forces should act as a sufficient trigger for isolated severe thunderstorms. Convective inhibition (CIN) at the surface as well as 100mb above the surface (ML-CIN), should reduce the risk of severe thunderstorms, and thunderstorms all together along the immediate northern shoreline of Lake Ontario: this will lead to cells rapidly weakening as they form near or just east of Lake Huron and usher eastwards. A relatively moderate lifted index (LI) will aid in dynamic instability leading to the greatest threat of isolated severe thunderstorms particularly near or just inland of Lake Huron and SE Georgian Bay. Storm relative helicity (SR) remains weak at the 0-1km threshold, and slightly stronger at the 3km threshold; this will allow for an increased threat of isolated severe thunderstorms in more of a linear format (although not encompassing a large area). Cyclonic updraft at the surface is virtually non-existent at the 0-1km threshold thereby limiting any tornado touchdown to virtually nil.

Other parameters including: Bulk Richardson Number, Cross-Totals, Total-Totals, Thompson Index and shear at the high atmosphere (6km) support isolated severe thunderstorms; although not super-cells; with a risk for strong wind gusts mainly to 90-100km/h as being the primary threat.

Non-conducive lapse-rates and wet-bulb zero (WBZ) coefficients will mitigate the hail risk overall to pea-size to nil.

Precipitable water (PWAT – surface to 300mb) is somewhat low for ‘torrential downpours’, therefore, residents should be spared a ‘flooding risk’ as typical with some severe thunderstorms.

Ultimately, the deepening of the approaching low-pressure system will be well-timed with strong uni-directional winds aloft, 500mb height-falls, and a jet-streak. Further, a sharp cold front is expected to eject through Southern Ontario between ~2-6pm thereby providing a trigger for these thunderstorms.

Across much of Southern Ontario, residents can expect winds gusting to 80km/h for many regions and locally up to 100km/h, irrespective if regions see thunderstorms or not.

Tie down loose patio furniture, patio umbrellas and chairs.

Remember, summer thunderstorm forecasts  – severe and/or non-severe – represent a plausible scenario based on extensive weather calculations, parameters and up-to-date atmospheric data. Nothing is for certain, but outlines a possible or likely scenario based on the aforementioned points.

[UPDATED] – Historic Weekend Ice-Storm and Strong Wind Gusts…


A strengthening, and ultimately a strong low pressure system from the Central Plains of the USA will approach Ontario and Quebec this weekend and stall as strong High Pressure in Northern Canada will force the low to become incredibly stagnant over the regions. There will be breaks in the precipitation at times [and a couple pulses of significant moisture, especially Sunday], but overall, the ‘quantitative precipitation forecast (QPF)’, or measurable total precipitation will be high from Saturday through Monday.

It is important to note that this storm will have EXTREMELY tight gradients between precipitation types and amounts (and hence, temperature). One region to the next in as little as 20 or 30 kilometers could receive drastically different amounts of snow, ice-pellets, and/or freezing rain. The difference between -1 and +1 could pose significant changes in traveling conditions for residents across ON/QC.

Importantly, regions who receive ice-pellets should note that the water content for snow and ice-pellets are drastically different. While snow is, on average, 10:1, ice-pellets are typically 2 or 3:1. This means, that 20-30mm worth of ice-pellets will “look” drastically different than 20-30cm of snow. On our forecast map, ice precipitation totals are displayed in mm. Please note that this is the equivalent amount of moisture that will fall as ice pellets. If 25mm falls – 75mm worth of ice pellets would accumulate; 3:1 ratio.

What to Expect

1) Heaviest Snow Region: Colder air will invade much of this region leading to mostly exclusively heavy snow. Some snow will occur Saturday/Monday; significant snow through Sunday.

2) Mostly Heavy Snow Region: Colder air will also invade much of this region. Most impacts through Sunday and residual on Monday.

3) DRY-SLOT. Some of: Snow/Ice/Rain Region: There appears to be somewhat of a dry-slot that will force itself within the large pulses of moisture – one across Northern Ontario – one across Southern Ontario. This dry-slot appears to encompass a large swath. However, while impacts will be reduced, they will still exist. This region can expect between 5-10cm of snow (locally up to 15cm), and a mixture of 5-10mm of ice precipitation in the form of ice and/or ice-pellets. Regions around Parry Sound and east will likely receive more freezing rain (than snow), while regions around Ottawa will receive more snow (than ice). It is possible, that regions just south of Ottawa could receive ~15cm. Ottawa itself is likely to receive closer to ~10cm and brief ice or ice pellets.

4) Wintry Mix Zone Region: Much of this region will receive snow, ice-pellets and light freezing rain. The colder air appears to be digging in more and more, and as such, freezing rain will likely no longer be a large threat (but will still lightly mix within at times). Regions such as Wiarton, Owen Sound, Barrie, Orillia, Midland, Collingwood, Meaford, Bracebridge, Gravenhurst, Peterborough, Bancroft and Muskoka are more likely to receive snow (>15cm); ice pellets (>15mm) for regions a little south of a line from Owen Sound east to Barrie and due east to Brockville.

5) Ice-Pellets [possibly Snow] and Ice Region #1: The Northern Lake Ontario shoreline is expected to receive a mixture of heavy ice-pellets and some ice. There is some potential that snow alongside ice-pellets could fall thereby reducing ice-pellet amount and increasing snowfall amounts in the 10-20cm range (lesser snow and more ice-pellets closer to the Western and Central Lake Ontario shoreline, such as: Ajax, Oshawa and Pickering; more ice for Eastern Lake Ontario sections such as Kingston and Brockville).

6) Ice Pellets [possibly Snow] and Ice Region #2: This region in Southern Ontario is expected to receive a mixture of ice-pellets and ice. There is some potential that snow alongside ice-pellets could fall thereby reducing ice-pellet amount and increasing snowfall amounts in the 5-15cm range (the lesser snow and more ice-pellets will be towards the Lake Huron shore-line, such as Goderich – higher amounts of snow for regions closer to Owen Sound and Barrie, than regions further away).

7) Highest ICE STORM Threat Region: This region continues to represent the highest potential for significant ice. Widespread 25mm is likely with some evidence suggesting 30mm or more by late Sunday.

8) High ICE STORM Threat Region: This region continues to represent a reasonably high potential for significant ice. Widespread 20mm is likely with some evidence suggesting closer to 25mm.

9) Moderate ICE STORM Threat Region: This region now shows some risk of an ice-storm. Early rainfall on Saturday may keep the ground warm enough where impacts for much of Saturday will be somewhat limited until early to mid evening. Impacts however by the end of Sunday could still pose a significant impact/risk. Depending on the cold air, it is possible this region may extend due west along the 402 through Komoka, Strathroy, Watford, Petrolia and Sarnia.

10) Risk of Non-Severe Thundershowers Region: Extreme SW Ontario is expected to receive mostly rain. Non-severe thundershowers are indeed also possible early Saturday. Expect a heavy and soaking rain. Very brief or slight ice is possible (1-3mm).

11) Critical Zone – Heavy Rain and Ice vs. Location Region: The Toronto region represents one of the hardest forecasts in this entire ‘storm’. Toronto will be extremely location dependent. People who live near the lake-shore will likely experience mostly rain with negligible amounts of ice. However, within the city there could be roughly 5-10mm of ice, and regions outside the city, 10mm+ of ice is possible.

This is due to a strong easterly and stiff (but shallow) wind off Lake Ontario which will create a small plume of far less freezing rain than surrounding counterparts.

[UPDATED] Which Regions are most likely to be Hit the Hardest from Ice? How Much?

25mm or more of accretion is expected.

St. Thomas
London,
Woodstock
St. Mary’s
Ingersoll
Brantford
Port Dover
Tilsonburg
Stratford
Mitchell

[UPDATED] In Southern Ontario which Regions are most likely to Receive the most Snow? How much?

Snowfall of 20-30cm, locally higher.

Owen Sound
Wiarton
Barrie
Orillia
Collingwood
Meaford
Gravenhurst
Minden
Haliburton
Angus
Bancroft
Whitney

City of Toronto – A ‘Tough Call’

For right in the City of Toronto, it is expected that a strong easterly wind will result in a slightly milder air-mass at the surface. As such, we at TCW believe the city itself should escape some of the ice, in comparison to regions further (although slightly outside) the city.

Therefore, we expect Toronto to receive mostly rain [especially the lake-shore] – perhaps still some freezing rain at times, late Saturday into early Sunday — however, rain will likely infiltrate before and after any freezing rain, thereby melting most of the ice that happens to fall and/or stick to the surrounding environment.

Nearby cities such as Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville, Ajax, Bowmanville, etc, are expected to see some ice. The closer one is directly to Toronto itself, the greater chance of more rain, and less ice. Once you reach roughly 10-15km outside of Toronto however, it is expected ice will be of concern.

Notice: QEW Region (Niagara, St. Catharines. Welland, etc)

This region is also an important place of interest due to again, slight warming from Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. This means regions very close to Lake Ontario and Lake Erie (within 10km of the shorelines or less) will receive 15-20% less ice than regions further away. However, irrespective of proximity towards the lake-shores, it is expected still, significant icing will occur.

How Bad Will This “Ice-Storm” Be?

This ice-storm has the potential to be significant. While it may be slightly less significant than if this event occurred in the typical winter months (due to stronger April diurnal heating in addition to a wet ground from late Fri to early Sat), it will still pose a significant threat to travel, trees and could lead to widespread and significant power-outages.

When Will Most of the Icing Occur?

Regardless of location, even regions who receive lesser ice accretions, the most widepsread, and heaviest icing will occur between the late morning or early to mid afternoon hours on Saturday, through Sunday. Even more specifically, most of the heaviest freezing rain will occur early to mid Sunday morning.

Monday Temperatures

Many regions are expected to transition to rain of some magnitude during Monday (slowly beginning later on Sunday).

Northern Ontario is expected to continue with further snow however, therefore temperatures although may climb above 0C, relatively humidity will be quite low and moisture will be quite high, therefore, regions will continue with snow.

On Monday Night, snow (3-7cm) may usher in towards the highlands and regions such as Shelburne and north of Toronto as cooler air returns.

Watch for widespread gusty winds for many regions up to 80km/h.

Please stay tuned, as we at TCW are monitoring this situation attentively.
