Loads happening over in the US and chasers are crossing into Canada where ever they can. Manitoba seems to be about to go off like a frog in a sock.

Nick Schenher tweeted:
"Southern Manitoba is about to explode...all parametres are off the charts. Warm front is moving in...supercells should go up shortly."

Was a pretty tough tornado season this year, the thermal contrast over the states due to a very warm spring meant that cyclogenesis was hard to come by, hence the potential for moisture advection was minimised. Without that moisture the LCLs remained relatively high and the supercells struggled to drop down for tornadogenesis Ended up spending a few weeks over there this season and picked up 15 tornadoes, not too bad but still not satisfied, pictures can be found at http://www.huntersofthunder.com in blog posts for most days, still a few posts to go up yet.
