At 8:15 pm EDT, Meteorologists began tracking a dangerous thunderstorm that was capable of producing a tornado in the Mount Forest, Arthur and Northern Wellington County region. Environment Canada issued a Tornado Warning at the time.



A tornado Warning was issued for the northern Bruce Peninsula on Saturday after a storm spotter reported a funnel cloud in the Mount Forest region.
