Description

An extremely rare early season and strong probable tornado. This would be the earliest recorded tornado to touch down within any year in Ontario and the only other to touch down within 148 years on that day. (Clifford, March 16, 2016) Weather observation records indicate very unstable air mass (probably warm sector) nosed north into the golden horseshoe area the morning of the 16th which would account for the severe weather in Toronto that morning.
