Our bit of rain this morning was the cold front passing through. Temperatures are going to drop through the day today, reaching negative values by this evening. West of us, Peterborough has dropped 10 degrees over the last nine hours to current temp of +3C. Bancroft has dropped 6 degrees over the last six hours to current temp of +2C. Petawawa has dropped 5 degrees in the last 4 hours to current +4C.
Looking forward, this cold will last at least two weeks, relative to normals. Wrt to snow, there is some consensus that Sunday will bring flurries with some light accumulation. The Euro is currently the most enthusiastic with giving us additional cms of snow on Monday.
With this strong Northwesterly flow, the typical areas for Lake Effect Snow are going to get hammered. Snow will be measured in feet in these areas over the next few days.
