This is an alert to the potential development of severe thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds. Monitor weather conditions. Listen for updated statements. If threatening weather approaches take immediate safety precautions.
A cluster of strong to potentially severe thunderstorms is crossing Lake Huron this morning. They will reach the Lake Huron shoreline around mid morning giving the potential for golf ball hail up to 4 centimetres as well as strong wind gusts to 100 km/h. Torrential rain of 50 mm within an hour and intense frequent lightning will also accompany the storms.
Ah shucks...today is our golf company tournament. Looks like the stars haven't been in my favour lately :o)
p.s. RJ left me a voice mail to inform me of the weather alert. At the end of the message he asked if there were any plants that I wanted brought in so they wouldn't get damaged. What a sweet guy.
