Default Tues. Nov.26, 2013 - snow storm

Initial forecasts from EC were 15-20cm. Now it has been dropped down to 2-5cm, with possibly no accumulation for areas near the lake

I was *really* looking forward to a good heavy snowfall!!

 ==DISCUSSION==

GENERAL SNOWFALL ON EDGE OF EAST COAST WINTER STORM.

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WITH MOISTURE FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO IS
 EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY INTO A WINTER STORM AS IT MOVES UP ALONG THE
 EASTERN SEABOARD OF THE UNITED STATES TONIGHT AND INTO NEW ENGLAND ON
 WEDNESDAY. THE ABOVE REGIONS ARE EXPECTED TO BE ON THE WESTERN FRINGE
 OF THE SNOW SHIELD FROM THIS STORM.

WET SNOW ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO SPREAD OVER THE
 REGIONS NEAR LAKE ERIE AND LAKE ONTARIO DURING THE AFTERNOON AND
 EVENING RUSH HOURS AND OVER REGIONS FARTHER TO THE NORTH LATER THIS
 EVENING. ALONG THE SHORELINE OF LAKE ONTARIO AND LAKE ERIE THE
 PRECIPITATION WILL LIKELY BEGIN AS RAIN OR A RAIN-WET SNOW MIX.
 HOWEVER AS NORTHERLY WINDS START TO PUMP IN COLDER AIR FROM THE NORTH
 OVERNIGHT, THE PRECIPITATION WILL CHANGE OVER TO ALL SNOW BY EARLY
 WEDNESDAY MORNING.

TOTAL SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS WILL RANGE FROM A TRACE TO JUST A COUPLE
 CENTIMETRES OVER THE WESTERN SECTIONS AND IMMEDIATELY ALONG THE
 SHORELINE OF LAKE ONTARIO IN THE TORONTO TO HAMILTON AREAS, TO 5 CM
 OVER THE NIAGARA ESCARPMENT. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE
 PROGRESSIVELY MORE AS YOU GO EAST, A SWATH OF AREAS EXTENDING FROM
 THE DURHAM REGION NORTHEAST ACROSS PETERBOROUGH TO EASTERN ALGONQUIN
 PARK COULD SEE 5 TO 10 CM AND ABOUT 10 CM FROM RENFREW TO  TRENTON.

EAST OF THESE REGIONS A SIGNIFICANTLY HEAVIER SNOWFALL IS EXPECTED
 AND SNOWFALL WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT FOR TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY FOR 15
 TO 25 CM OF SNOW.

MOTORISTS SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR POOR WINTER DRIVING CONDITIONS
 TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY AND ALLOW FOR EXTRA TIME TO REACH THEIR
 DESTINATION. TRAVEL INTO EASTERN ONTARIO AND NEIGHBOURING NEW YORK
 STATE WILL BE DIFFICULT DUE TO HEAVIER SNOW EXPECTED WITH WARNINGS IN
 EFFECT. TRAVELLERS ARE ADVISED TO USE EXTREME CAUTION IF TRAVEL IS
 UNAVOIDABLE, AND SINCE THIS WINTER STORM WILL IMPACT MUCH OF THE
 NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES, EASTERN ONTARIO AND QUEBEC, TRAVELLERS
 SHOULD CHECK WITH AIRLINES FOR FLIGHT DELAYS AND CANCELLATIONS.

ENVIRONMENT CANADA IS CLOSELY MONITORING THE PROGRESS OF THIS WINTER
 STORM. SMALL DEVIATIONS IN THE EXACT TRACK OF THIS STORM CENTRE MAY
 RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THE AMOUNT OF SNOW THAT FALLS
 TONIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY. SHOULD THE STORM CENTRE TRACK JUST A LITTLE
 CLOSER TO THE REGIONS, SNOWFALL WARNINGS MAY BE REQUIRED.

LAKE EFFECT SNOW SOUTH OF LAKE HURON WEDNESDAY.

MEANWHILE IN A STIFF AND COLD NORTHERLY FLOW IN THE WAKE OF THIS
 WINTER STORM, SNOW SQUALLS MAY DEVELOP WEDNESDAY IN LAMBTON AND
 WESTERN MIDDLESEX COUNTIES. LOCAL ACCUMULATIONS OF NEAR 10 CM ARE
 LIKELY AND THERE IS SOME POTENTIAL FOR HIGHER AMOUNTS NEAR 15 CM IF
 THE SNOW SQUALLS BECOME STATIONARY FOR A FEW HOURS. MOTORISTS
 DRIVING INTO THESE AREAS SHOULD ALSO BE PREPARED FOR HAZARDOUS
 WINTER DRIVING CONDITIONS FROM VERY LOW VISIBILITY IN BURSTS OF
 HEAVY SNOW AND ACCUMULATING SNOW ON UNTREATED ROADS. SNOW SQUALL
 WATCHES OR WARNINGS MAY BE ISSUED AS NECESSARY.

THE PUBLIC IS ADVISED TO MONITOR FUTURE FORECASTS AND WARNINGS AS
 WARNINGS MAY BE REQUIRED OR EXTENDED.

END/OSPC
