I was just looking at the GFS model runs today and i noticed that the model is forecasting a strong LP to the east of us throughout next week. Current models predict the low to come ashore off the east coast and stay over quebec meaning that we will be on the back side. We will have a chance at some possible accumulating snow and defenitly snow squalls after too. The farther east and mabye a little north :p you go the better for accumulating snow. Anyway just thought i'd let you guys know my findings. The low looks to drop to around the high 970's around 976 or mabye around 980mb

Looks like it's going to be a very windy period filled with intense lake effect snow activity on the 7th.

We have several members in the lake effect affected regions in coming days, do report in your snow totals!!



RADAR SHOWS FLURRIES AND SNOW SQUALLS ARE WHITENING REGIONS
SOUTH OF GEORGIAN BAY FROM A FEW KM EAST OF OWEN SOUND TO
WASAGA BEACH AND THE MIDLAND-ORILLIA AREAS THEN SOUTH SOUTHEAST
TO AURORA AND NEWMARKET. THE STRONGEST SNOW SQUALLS WILL DUMP
15 TO 25 CM PER 12 HOURS ESPECIALLY IF THEY GET LOCKED IN OVER
A PARTICULAR LOCALE FOR A WHILE. A CANWARN TRAINED SPOTTER
HAS REPORTED NEAR ZERO VISIBILITY IN SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW
ALONG WITH ACCUMULATING SNOW IN THE INNISFIL AREA THIS
AFTERNOON.

AS WELL..AN AREA SOUTHEAST OF LAKE HURON FROM GODERICH TO
KETTLE POINT SOUTHEASTWARDS TO ELGIN COUNTY AND LAKE ERIE IS
BEING TURNED INTO A WINTER WONDERLAND BY FLURRIES AND SNOW
SQUALLS. THE SNOW SQUALLS ARE INTENSIFYING AS EXPECTED AND MAY
CONSOLIDATE INTO A PARTICULARLY STRONG SNOW SQUALL WHICH MAY
DUMP 15 TO 30 CM OF SNOW PER 12 HOURS ONTO MIDDLESEX AND
EASTERN PARTS OF LAMBTON COUNTY..INCLUDING LONDON AND
STRATHROY..TONIGHT INTO MONDAY. A CANWARN TRAINED SPOTTER
HAS REPORTED 12 TO 15 CM OF SNOW AND NEAR ZERO VISIBILITY IN
HEAVY SNOW IN THE CITY OF LONDON THIS AFTERNOON. IF A STRONG
SNOW SQUALL LOCKS IN OVER A PARTICULAR LOCALE FOR A
WHILE..LOCAL ACCUMULATIONS OF 60 CM OR MORE BY TUESDAY
MORNING ARE QUITE POSSIBLE.

Well I've passed 20 cm in my backyard in Bradford since this band set up today This is probably one if the heaviest consistant snows I've been in. Dark greens and yellows on the radar all afternoon and a pretty good wind driving it........I'm assuming it will ease back after midnight if the winds are supposed to calm down. I can't remember the last time such heavy lake effect was down this way
for so long I love it after last winters snoozefest!

I measured another 11cm this morning the band has shifted just to the west so nothing today yet but it's safe to say we got 30cm yesterday and last night........thats good for me i shovelled 3 times.......

Extremely jealous of those in Middlesex County right now... A squall positioned itself over KW earlier this evening. We got 2cm in just one hour before it shifted south and dissipated. It was nice while it lasted.

Just phenomenal with that lake effect band that has shifted south back over London. Snowfall rates of 1-2 inches per hour are being indicated by radar right now.

I would not be surprised, and as EC as said as well, we could definitely be looking at accumulations of over 100cms by Wednesday across parts of southwest Ontario by Wednesday. This is just unbelievable.

Ecch.. I was hoping this thread was full of misinformation :)

I can't believe we've had snow already!!! We usually don't get anything until at least NEAR x-mas (and often have a green xmas).

Got to the end of my street (subdivision) going to work this afternoon. Stopped at the stop sign, just TOUCHED the gas while turning left, and did a 270 degree spin, and the truck was spinning VERY slowly. Just goes to show the ice on the road was SUPER slick. I practically had enough time while spinning to sit back, relax, zip up my coat... heh. As for snow, the ground's not covered, but there's quite a bit of white. GRR. Whatever happened to EC's prediction that this was going to be a warm winter? It was minus 4 last night !!!! That's January weather!! GRRRRR!
