Still going fishing on Saturday

Recommended Posts

Oh well, guess we will leave one hour earlier.

 

 

A WINTER STORM IS CURRENTLY BREWING OVER TEXAS WITH THE POTENTIAL TO BRING SIGNIFICANT SNOW TO MOST OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO. IT APPEARS THAT THE SNOW WILL COME IN TWO DOSES. THE FIRST SHOT WILL BEGIN AS EARLY AS FRIDAY AFTERNOON FOR SOUTHWESTERN ONTARIO AND FRIDAY EVENING IN EASTERN ONTARIO. WE MAY HAVE A BRIEF REPRIEVE OVERNIGHT INTO SATURDAY MORNING WHERE SNOW MAY BECOME LIGHT AND MORE INTERMITTENT. THE HEAVIEST SNOWFALL IS THEN EXPECTED IN THE SECOND SHOT BEGINNING LATER SATURDAY. KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS STORM IS EXPECTED TO LAST FOR 36 TO 48 HOURS. STORM TOTALS MAY BE NEAR 30 CENTIMETRES ALONG AND EAST OF A LINE FROM LONG POINT TO THE GOLDEN HORSESHOE THEN TO PETAWAWA. THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR 30 TO 50 CENTIMETRES OF SNOW OVER THE NIAGARA PENINSULA AND PARTS OF EASTERN ONTARIO. AREAS WEST OF THE LONG POINT TO PETAWAWA LINE SHOULD SEE BETWEEN 10 TO 20 CENTIMETRES WITH LESSER AMOUNTS NEAR LAKE HURON AND GEORGIAN BAY. BEHIND THIS SYSTEM WE COULD SEE STRONG NORTHERLY WINDS TO 60 KM/H. ON SATURDAY STRONG WINDS COMBINED WITH FRESH SNOW WILL CAUSE BLOWING SNOW TO LOWER VISIBILITIES AND CREATE DANGEROUS DRIVING CONDITIONS. WHITEOUT CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE SO TRAVELLERS SHOULD BE PREPARED TO ALTER THEIR PLANS ACCORDINGLY. TOTAL SNOWFALL AMOUNTS WILL DEPEND ON THE TRACK OF THIS SYSTEM. THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY AS TO THE EXACT TRACK OF THIS STORM. ENVIRONMENT CANADA WILL CLOSELY MONITOR THIS SITUATION AND ISSUE WARNINGS AS REQUIRED WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

Me too, I'm afraid. Looks like I will be playing in a crappie tourney in Dunchurch, e of Parry Sound for noon on Saturday. I might have to leave on Friday evening, to beat all that snow.

 

Anybody think I can fly that one past SWMBO?
