QUOTE(Lake effect @ Feb 14 2018, 07:16 AM) *
Yeah, if I'd been here for Christmas and this last storm (or any storm) had delivered as advertised on Sunday, I might feel more neutral about this winter, but ultimately it has underperformed, and most of that is due to a lack of LES. We normally will have a few weeks or more with 40-60cms of snowpack at some point. We hit 42cm in January but it was all but washed away shortly after, and not replenished for a long while. The lakes are now frozen, so LES becomes weak, the GFS looks horrid, precip rolls in rain, or misses, then followed by cold...just want it over now. The one consolation is that I can moan about it without being shot down 😁


haha...yep, whine away. It's a weather forum. People are passionate about the weather. It's nice to be able to vent somewhere once in a while.

2C and sunny outside, the meltdown is on!

Feeling very comfortable out there and that sun is gaining more and more strength everyday. Sad to see our beautiful snowpack slowly vanish but at least we made it to half the month with snow cover here.

Yes, I can say good bye to the winter that really wasn't for many people. Newmarket got it's share of snows but never from a storm system, except Christmas Eve. If it isn't going to snow, might as well bring on spring. Love the daylight in the morning now and the warmth of the sun when the wind isn't blowing. I must say I had high hopes for LES snow for the snowbelts as we can cash in on them sometimes but what a disappointment, even with the warmth of the lakes. Oh well, it just means the cottage will be open sooner rather than later. I remember one year being out on the dock and it was 18 degrees on the 3rd of April... But holy cow, doesn't seem so long ago it was Christmas. Where does the time go....

Wow...at 4 degrees in the sun already. Short range models busting today as I suspected they might. RAP and HRRR had me maxing out at 2-3. Should hit 5-6 by later this afternoon based on full sun, SW Wind and rising 850 temps.
Tons of loud crashing happening outside as giant icicles fall to the ground and roof slopes full of snow slide off.

Yup, same thing happening here as well. Caught me off guard at first laugh.gif

The meltdown is on this afternoon with tons of water and slush everywhere. Snow cover still relatively intact but we're losing a lot of snow and fast.

I've been enjoying this winter and hope we can get more cold and snow in March to boost our totals a bit. Other than that, no complaints.

Interesting CBC graphic, certainly well on course for the least snowiest winter here on record as we are well below the worst 3 on record at this point, though still got hopes we might at least claw something out of the latter Feb and March with the negative ao/nao setting up:

amazing how much snow melted overnight. Temp rose to 6 overnight. Gonna make a run at 10 today. I'm seeing signs of not just double digits early next week, but a possible run into the teens. If all the long ranges are to be believed, winter is basically done.

I hope not! I want more snow to boost our totals closer to average and I hope that March and April can deliver some more snowfalls. It's been a good winter so far but I need more lol tongue.gif

I'm glad some of you are seeing the end of winter. I can tell you that in Montreal, there's still mega blobs of snow. The city had to rent some of these suckers:http://www.lapresse.ca/actualites/grand-mo...ots-a-neige.php so that they can toss the snow higher because they are running out of space.

I rent a garage that is in a lane not far from my house. I had to run there today to help a guy load up some furniture. The snowbanks are 12 feet high. There's no room for anymore snow.

Granted, it's been melting since yesterday and next week looks to be warm and rainy. But there is so much snow here that it's going to take a lot of warm raining days to rid of the stuff.

Next Monday and Tuesday are +6 & +12 respectively with 10-15 mm of rain each day. After that, temps are forecast to be above zero after that. We might still get snow but unless the cold returns big time, we might be on the way to an early spring. The sun is getting higher in the sky and you can feel the solar loading on sunny days melting ice on the roads and roofs. In a couple of weeks, ice huts have to be off the ice, so that should speak about changes to come. That said, I think we are transitioning to yucky ice/storms as temperatures battle it out. Just my opinion but I am ready for the birds, buds on the trees and the trickle of mud running down the road side...

Hey JFK , the snow dump is full here indeed and Anjou too , usually when Saint-Leonard is full Anjou let's Saint-Leonard use their but this time it's impossible so i guess the only way to go unless to go somewhere else very far to dump it and slow down the snow removal considerably is to rent these. The worst is that Saint-Leonard since 2008 always rent a higher snowblower for the snow dump but i guess this year it's not enough.

You know very well and im sure you will agree with me that with March it can snow a lot and with the SSW , the AO and the NAO we coud be in for good storms for here so.

The other thing too is that since the screw up they did last time with the snow removal , they can't afford to do another mistake especially when they were just elected.

Been sitting at 9 degrees here the past few hours. Water rushing everywhere. One good thing about this big melt is it should ease the flooding worries early next when it looks like we could see a bundle of rain and more mild temps.
