Crazy afternoon around my area yesterday. Lots of rain and wind of course and there was a huge flash of lightning and huge boom of thunder around the time of the waterspout sighting.

The CBC link below includes a video taken near UBC.

Another storm will be upon us late tomorrow an into Tuesday. Oy.

I never in my life thought there would be a tornado warning in BC much less in Vancouver. I always figured the climate and the latitude prevented that. Guess I was wrong.

When we were on the island it was very rare to see lightning tornadoes were unheard of

IIRC, anywhere it is possible for tornadoes to form. All it takes is 3 weather conditions to occur, and you get a tornado. (heating lift, upper cooling, and a cross or shearing wind)

But these conditions happen more regularly in certain areas.

True that. Like I said, I never expected those conditions to happen on the coast.

Nope. Just the new reality. Wild and weird weather.

I expected huge thunderstorms this summer when we had that heatwave, as temps above 26 usually mean t-storms. But there was no moisture, so no storms.

We got lots of dry lightning during the heat wave, and some pyrocumulus clouds from the fires.

Sad but true.

And yeah I totally expected some nasty thunderstorms after that vicious heatwave this summer. That’s the usual SOP for hot weather around here.
