The forecast for Newmarket was calling for 2 to 4 we've had about 8 in the last 2 hours.....anybody know why all the snow when nobody was calling for it?

Well, early in the day it wasn't looking like for anything significant on the models, but when the 18z runs came out, the low was much farther north. Hence why the NWS/EC missed it, then I don't think they believed the models shifting it north. Maybe.

(for the record, they issued the warning 20 minutes after I phoned in :whistling: )

Ya we have had about 5-8 cm so far.

I came in at 16cm in a four period. Between 415-545pm, 12cm of snow had fallen. It was insane to watch unfold. That really just made up for the lackluster 2009-2010 weather seasons. I'm still patting myself on the back!

Nice I thought to myself after about 8 cm pretty soon there will be a warning on this. Good call derecho
