There's a lightning strike alert in the GTA right now (MAP)

Jun 13 2017, 1:18 pm

It may not be raining yet, but there’s already a lightning strike alert in the GTA right now.

The Weather Network keeps track of reported strikes and compiles them on a map with time and locations. While no lightning strikes have been reported in Toronto proper yet, 9 strikes recently occurred over Lake Ontario near Cobourg and 3 more were recorded south of Barrie, moving toward Toronto.

Combine this with a risk of thunderstorms later in the day and you can understand why you might want to look up throughout the day to check the skies. Then again, maybe just stay inside altogether.
