That fight: Several rounds of severe thunderstorms, and plenty of them each day.
Many areas will see storms as early as Wednesday in Eastern Canada, with some seeing unstable conditions last into the start of the weekend.
Here’s the breakdown, day-by-day:
- WEDNESDAY: Northeastern Ontario, Ottawa/Montreal, Southern Quebec, New Brunswick
- THURSDAY: Southern Manitoba, Northern & Central Ontario, Eastern Ontario
- FRIDAY: Southern Ontario & Southern Quebec, New Brunswick
- SATURDAY: 401 Corridor & south, Ottawa/Montreal, S. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
But don’t just take my word for it.
The U.S. Storm Prediction Center is arguably the cream of the crop in forecasting severe weather. The agency has forecast severe weather areas for the southern Great Lakes region and Northeast U.S. for Friday and Saturday respectively, heavily implying a severe weather risk extending into Canada.
If you’re planning on being outdoors later this week, be sure to check the forecast before heading out. Particularly, look out for severe thunderstorm watches issued by Environment Canada. Government issued watches & warnings are the most official heads up available to the Canadian public, when dealing with weather that has the potential to threaten life or property.
Whether you are at risk of severe weather this week or not, don’t let the weather stop you from enjoying the summer. Put on that sunscreen, get outdoors and enjoy. Stay safe everyone.http://www.theweathernetwork.com/news/articles/severe-weather-aiming-for-eastern-canada/9395/
