Probably the last good chance for decent storms in 2014.  High instability,  moist boundary layer, and a modified/remnant EML at mid levels were the PROS – one big CON:  Upper level flow lagged off to the NW and meant that precip would fall into adjacent updrafts and morphology would quickly shift to linear/outflow dominant mode.

Still meant there would be some decent shelf related structure and was able to document a nice Whale’s Mouth and precip core at London, Ontario:
