Later it occurs in more northerly regions and, in July, in western Canada. Tornadoes occur most. A comparison of tornado frequency in western Canada before and after suggests that tornado frequency increases (decreases) with positive (negative) mean monthly temperature anomalies.

If climate warming occurs due to increasing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, the inference that more tornadoes will occur seems by: On average, around 80 confirmed and unconfirmed tornadoes touch down in Canada each year, with most occurring in Southern Ontario, the southern Canadian Prairies and southern Quebec.

Tornado season extends from April to September with peak months in June and July, but they can occur at any time of year. Tornadoes are graded for intensity on the "Fujita scale'' (named after the noted tornado research scientist, Ted Fujita), from F-0 to F Canada has never had an F-5 tornado.

Of Canadian tornadoes, 45 percent are F-0, 29 percent are F-1, 21 percent are F-2, four percent are F-3. Across Canada, the month with the most tornado activity is July (about a third of all tornadoes). Slightly more than half of all Canadian tornadoes occur between pm and pm (data drawn from analysis of the ECCC year database).

Tornadoes Observed – Rare – Tornadoes observed, but probability of a tornado is between /km2/year and /km2/year. Based on these findings, a tornado-prone map was created and then. Western and the Quebec Storm Prediction Centre also conducted ground surveys of the areas hit by tornadoes.

The same climatological regime that brings tornadoes to the southern Great Plains in early spring moves north through the year to unleash more of the same on western Canada in July.

The Southern Ontario Tornado Outbreak of was a series of severe thunderstorms that spawned numerous tornadoes in Southwestern Ontario, Central Ontario and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) on Augand was the largest single-day tornado outbreak in Ontario history and the largest in Canadian history.

During the afternoon and evening, nineteen tornadoes touched down with four of Max. rating: F2 tornado. As unseasonably cold and dry air from western Canada advanced toward the warm and moist air over southern Ontario, it produced a major thunderstorm with a funnel cloud.
