That is a great weather tracker, glad to see it doesn't have a category for Derecho on it.

If that photo is true all I can say is take care all down there, that looks crazy.

Any truth to that photo? Can't find any reports.

There's some speculation that it's from a tornado that hit 2 years ago.

Quite the light show last night. We had about 20 minutes of really heavy rain in Oakville then it kind of fizzled out. Could have been worse (and I'm sure it was in other areas)
There's valid reasons for the limited interest. Get out of your basement if you dare. The real world will bend you over.

The U.S. East coast is bracing for a Category 3 storm (Hurricane Irene), which will bring winds of up to 185km/hr, including massive rain (possible flooding).  The areas are New York, Boston, New Jersey, Washngton D.C., North Carolina (which as declared a state of emergency ahead of time as people have been advised to leave the area temporarily or stay under proper shelter). 

Hurricane Irene battered the Bahamas earlier this week, causing extensive damage but few casualties, sparing Nassau, the capital. 

It's feared that the impact of Hurricane Irene will cost the U.S. billions of dollars and will impact an already weak U.S. economy.

Manditory evacuation in 5 NYC boroughs... Wow! I had no idea this thing was that serious.

Edit: Though I suppose it's more to do with the cities ability to handle a hurricane rather than the force of the hurricane itself. - An ounce of provention I suppose...

Eastern Canada -- the Quebec Eastern townships, Atlantic Canada including Newfoundland and Labrador -- are all

bracing for the after-effects of Hurricane Irene, when it passes out toward the Atlantic.  The Canadian Hurricane Centre
calls for a tropical storm, that will bring winds of up to 137 km/hr, and extensive rainfall. 

In the U.S., Hurricane Irene is now a Category 1, however, it can easily go up to a Category 2.  The entire U.S. East coast
 is on extremely high alert, as Irene hurtles towards the Northeasterly part of New York.

Looks like it's going to be a "warmer and drier autumn", according to Environment Canada. 

Also, for the coming winter, temperatures in Ontario are expected to be near normal, a.k.a. warmer!  However, it could all be offset by the presence of "La Nina", which, if it does, will bring a colder and snowier winter weather across the country.  Awww......   :( :) ???

"La Nina" is set to make an on and off comeback this winter, which bodes very bad and an extremely cold winter weather for Western Canada, while more normal temperatures for Ontario and Quebec, with the occasional winter storm and Arctic cold.  (Sigh.  I want summer back!!!)   :(

For more on the upcoming winter weather for all of us Canucks....

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/dailybrew/cold-winter-predicted-western-canada-mostly-normal-ontario-174459822.html


Meteorologists are calling for an early and cold winter in Western Canada, probably one of the top three coldest in the last 20 years for the West Coast.

... western provinces can expect a fifth-consecutive deep freeze to move in and stay.

For the rest of Canada, including the Greater Toronto Area and St. Lawrence Valley, it's expected to be business as usual with typical winter weather patterns in place most of the season.

Ontario and the Montreal area will be hit with a couple of Arctic blasts throughout the winter and several hard-hitting snowstorms, but temperatures will be above normal overall, he said.

"That's typical of a La Nina, but (blasts) don't last very long; they come and they go," he said.

The effect is expected to be moderate this year, Anderson says.

On the East Coast it will be drier than normal in Newfoundland and Labrador and slightly colder. Other parts of the East will see a normal winter, with southern areas a little less cold.
