A lunch look..

The snow hole that is southern and eastern Ontario may get filled in somewhat late next week as a clipper comes with what is currently predicted to be a few inches.  But the main news remains the cold that is coming in two shots next week.   Sunday to Wednesday we will see overnight lows well into the -20s C.  Following the clipper is another more intense Arctic high that is currently predicted on some models to give us overnight lows well into the -30s C next weekend and into February.

Cold, cold, cold....

Remember the maps below show anomaly, ie difference from normal temperatures.

And no snow of significance in any outlook...dang it.

Last five days of January

First five days of February

Thursday, January 15, 2015's gone.

As expected, the major storm is gone from the forecast.  Sigh.  However there are plenty of opportunities for light to moderate snows for the next while.

Oh please, oh please, oh please...

Riding the bus, reading my various weather apps, I nearly fell off my seat when viewing the TWN forecast for Monday: a major storm.   I wish I could show the mafps. TWN, taking its cue from the Euro model is giving us a foot of snow over a couple days. The Euro is phasing a northern and southern branch system into one big one.
No other model is showing this so I am pessimist...But I am hoping.

Picture of coming cold...

While the mild temperatures aren't going to stick and hold in our area at all, maybe for a day or two.
the coming cold probably will...

Parade of Clippers

The cold should start to let up tomorrow after which we will see a period of more reasonable temperatures. However, as posted previously, I don't think we are going to have a January thaw.  As well, the last week of the month is still looking cold.

During the seven days we should see a few clippers with timing of approximately Thursday evening, Saturday afternoon and Tuesday evening.  Beyond that,  there is again potential for a larger storm.  

As an aside, daytime posts are coming via my phone as work IT has blocked all google except for the search engine.  Therefore there are no pics with the daytime posts.   Evening and weekend posts may have pics if applicable.

Well, that's a fun little snow squall

Quick Friday post

Last night's snow accumulated about 2-3 inches as a rough estimate.  My snow clearing readers will be able to give a better one.
Looking ahead, late Sunday into Monday will likely have some accumulating snow followed by a couple cold days.  The models are still all over the place with the system later next week.  So I will hold judgment on that one for now.  However it looks like we will experience a few days of milder days around the third week of January.  At this point I don't think it is in "thaw" territory. That being said, I think January will close out colder than normal.
Stay tuned.
