Watched some weak cells move in from the west before dusk tonight. Persistent mid-level inflow bands from the north, non-rotating ragged bases were evident under training cells that seemed to also feed off moisture from factory stack emissions. A thin funnel emerged from the eastern most cell and lasted for about 4mins just before dark.

Gee thats gotta be a huge downgrade from what you just saw in the U.S recently lol. Thanks for posting the pics though Brad as it's good to see what things look like a little further north of here.

I've been hanging out for a decent chase for awhile now, I hate winter!

Yeah, really hoping to get something to chase on Sunday.

New job this year means I won't get to do much chasing during the week unless it's after hours. Knowing my luck, an awesome line will roll through about 2pm Monday when I'm stuck in the office.
