Storm Warning

Recommended Posts

A COMPLEX LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM FROM THE SOUTHERN UNITED STATES HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BRING A SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL TO THE REGIONS TONIGHT INTO MONDAY. AN EXCEPTION WILL BE AREAS NEAR LAKE ERIE WHERE ICE PELLETS AND FREEZING RAIN WILL BE LIKELY TODAY. IN FACT FREEZING RAIN HAS ALREADY BEGUN IN WINDSOR AND WILL SPREAD ALONG THE NORTH SHORE OF LAKE ERIE EARLY THIS MORNING. THE FREEZING RAIN IS EXPECTED TO LAST SEVERAL HOURS BEFORE CHANGING TO SNOW AND ICE PELLETS. FREEZING RAIN IS ALSO POSSIBLE AGAIN TONIGHT INTO MONDAY MORNING. TRAVELLERS SHOULD EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION AS UNTREATED SURFACES MAY BECOME QUITE SLIPPERY. SNOW WILL BEGIN THIS EVENING OVER THE SOUTHWEST FROM SARNIA TO LONDON TO HAMILTON AND AS FAR NORTH AS KITCHENER AND MISSISSAUGA. NEAR 10 CENTIMETRES OF SNOW IS EXPECTED TONIGHT WITH ANOTHER 5 CENTIMETRES MONDAY. SNOW MAY BE MIXED WITH ICE PELLETS AT TIMES. THIS MEANS A TOTAL ACCUMULATION OF UP TO 15 CENTIMETRES FOR THESE WARNED REGIONS. THE TIMING OF THE SNOW COULD ALSO POSE A PROBLEM FOR MONDAY MORNING COMMUTERS. GIVEN THE TIMING OF THE EVENT AND THE FACT THAT THIS WILL BE THE FIRST MAJOR SNOWFALL FOR SOME OF THE WARNED COMMUNITIES..THIS COULD BE A SIGNIFICANT WINTER EVENT. THE WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR REGIONS ALONG THE NORTH SHORE OF LAKE ONTARIO AND THE ST LAWRENCE RIVER. WARNINGS MAY BE EXTENDED TO THESE AREAS AS MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE TRACK OF THIS STORM SYSTEM BECOMES AVAILABLE. THE COLDEST AIRMASS SO FAR THIS SEASON WILL MOVE IN BEHIND THE SYSTEM. ENVIRONMENT CANADA WILL MONITOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SITUATION CLOSELY. PLEASE REFER TO THE LATEST PUBLIC FORECASTS FOR FURTHER DETAILS.

 

There are a host of warnings issued for various regions...

That sucks, I'm in Brampton this morning and have to drive back home to Windsor later this afternoon. Could be a slow trip.

Why does it seem that we get these things on a Sunday. Just makes the Monday morning slog to the workhouse all that more enjoyable.

 

Only a dusting here in Keswick right now BUT it looks to a good 2 weeks of below freezing temps. Maybe that will ice over Cooks

The Weather Network says it's -5 up here, but it feels warmer to me, just cloudy now, but they say we'll get some snow here tonight, not too much though...

 

Supposed to be a chilly night though, good for making ice :D

The deck has been covered with snow for a couple of hours and it's not

going to stop soon. Speaking for my neck of the non-woods. (Mississauga)

 

Can't complain.

 

If all the rain we've had was snow, we probably would have broken snowfall records

for Nov. & Dec. Quite a bit of rain the first half of Jan. too.

Warming up Maureen, now up to -3C and still looks like spring. Certainly is different seeing Toronto getting the white stuff instead of us. Hope the Weather channel is right about the light amount of snow we are suppose to get tonight.

 

Of course you won't hear any complaints from me if we don't get anything at all. :thumbsup_anim:

10 CENTIMETRES HEAVY SNOW AND ICE PELLETS WITH SOME FREEZING RAIN AGAIN TONIGHT INTO MONDAY. THIS IS A WARNING THAT DANGEROUS WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE IMMINENT OR OCCURRING IN THESE REGIONS. MONITOR WEATHER CONDITIONS..LISTEN FOR UPDATED STATEMENTS.

THE LEAD DISTURBANCE THAT BROUGHT A FEW MM OF FREEZING RAIN AND ICE PELLETS TO AREAS NEAR LAKE ERIE AND 2-4 CM OF SNOW FROM SARNIA THROUGH KITCHENER TO THE TORONTO AREA HAS MOVED AWAY INTO UPSTATE NEW YORK. ISOLATED FLURRIES OR VERY BRIEF OCCURRENCES OF FREEZING DRIZZLE ARE POSSIBLE DURING THIS EXPECTED BREAK IN THE WEATHER UNDER GENERALLY OVERCAST SKIES INTO THIS EVENING. DESPITE THE LULL..THE BATTLE BETWEEN THE MILD AIR WELL TO THE SOUTH AND THE INVADING COLD ARCTIC AIR OF WINTER FROM THE NORTH IS NOT OVER. THE MAIN STORM CENTRE..CURRENTLY DEVELOPING OVER NORTHEAST TEXAS WILL RIDE NORTHEAST ALONG THE LINE OF A STALLED FRONT INTO OHIO AND PENNSYLVANIA BY MONDAY. THIS LOW PRESSURE WILL BE QUITE A BIT STRONGER THAN THE PREVIOUS ONE AND WILL SPREAD A LARGER AREA OF SNOW AND FREEZING RAIN BACK INTO THE DISTRICT BEGINNING LATER THIS EVENING OVER SOUTHWESTERN ONTARIO THEN INTO REMAINING REGIONS OVERNIGHT. FREEZING RAIN AND ICE PELLETS WILL ONCE AGAIN AFFECT AREAS NEAR LAKE ERIE WHERE THE FREEZING RAIN WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT. ICE ACCRETIONS OF A FEW MM ARE QUITE POSSIBLE BY MONDAY. SNOW..HEAVY AT TIMES..MIXED AT TIMES WITH ICE PELLETS AND FREEZING RAIN WILL AFFECT A SWATH OF REGIONS FROM SARNIA THROUGH LONDON TO HAMILTON AND ST CATHARINES WHERE WINTER STORM WARNINGS REMAIN IN EFFECT. SNOW AND ICE PELLETS AMOUNTS OF 10 CM ARE QUITE POSSIBLE ALONG WITH ICE ACCRETIONS OF 2-5 MM DURING PERIODS OF FREEZING RAIN. FURTHER NORTH IN THE KITCHENER TO TORONTO TO KINGSTON AREAS..SNOW AND ICE PELLETS WILL BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES OVERNIGHT AND MONDAY MORNING AND MAY MIX AT TIMES WITH FREEZING RAIN AS WELL. SNOW AND ICE PELLET AMOUNTS OF 10 TO 15 CM APPEAR QUITE LIKELY BY MONDAY EVENING. SNOWFALL WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT FOR THESE DISTRICTS. THE SNOW WILL SPREAD NORTHEAST INTO THE ST LAWRENCE VALLEY MONDAY MORNING WHERE THE WINTER STORM WATCH MAY BE UPGRADED TO WARNINGS LATER TODAY AS THE EVENT DRAWS CLOSER. SHOULD THE HEAVY SNOW OR FREEZING RAIN PUSH FURTHER NORTH THAN EXPECTED..WARNINGS WILL BE ADJUSTED ACCORDINGLY. THIS MAY BE QUITE A HIGH IMPACT STORM AS MOST AREAS HAVE HAD LITTLE OR NO SNOW OR FREEZING RAIN UNTIL NOW. MOTORISTS SHOULD EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION AND BE PREPARED TO ALLOW MUCH EXTRA TIME TO REACH THEIR DESTINATION IF TRAVEL IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. DANGEROUS WINTER DRIVING CONDITIONS ARE LIKELY..ESPECIALLY DURING THE MONDAY MORNING HOURS WHEN THE SNOW AND FREEZING RAIN MAY BE HEAVIEST ACROSS A LARGE PART OF THE FORECAST DISTRICT. WINTER WILL FINALLY WIN THIS LATEST BATTLE WITH THE MILD AIR AS THE STORM CENTRE RACES OFF INTO NEW ENGLAND BY MONDAY EVENING. IN ITS WAKE THE COLDEST AIRMASS SO FAR THIS SEASON WILL INVADE BEHIND THIS STORM BY TUESDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL PLUNGE SEVERAL DEGREES BELOW NORMAL AS WINTER FINALLY SETTLES IN FOR THE TIME BEING. ENVIRONMENT CANADA CONTINUES TO MONITOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SITUATION CLOSELY. PLEASE REFER TO THE LATEST PUBLIC FORECASTS FOR FURTHER DETAILS.
