With winter quickly approaching(wow did that go by quickly) I thought this would be a good idea seeing as it was a hit last year. You must predict the amount of snowfall that will occur between Nov 15th and April 15th for the 5 locations listed. You can edit as many times as you want up until that point.

The member who gets the minimum cumulative departure will win. For example if you think Toronto will receive 100cm and they receive 90, you get a score of ten. Member with the lowest score wins. I will be tracking the scores throughout the winter as snow begins to fall....

Snowfall Forecasts in cm Valid for the following locations. I chose North York station over YYZ this year due to the nipher gauge problem.


Climate ID: 615S001 (North York, On):

YOW(Ottawa, On):

YUL(Montreal, Que):

AJW(St John's, NL):

YVR(Vancouver, BC):

Contest closes on November 15th at 12:00 AM. Hopefully we can get a lot of participants. Good luck!

Normal for them though, was looking at some snowfall stats for them and it's pretty much non existant most winters under a foot, price you pay living next to a warm ocean out to the SW....reminds me of winters in the south of England where despite the pretty northely latitude snow not very common(same thing there with a warm Atlantic adjacent).

Vancouver did have near 186cm in 1970/71 though! tongue.gif

That's still our top snowfall year here with 07-08 in second place.

La Nina tends to share the wealth for Canada in terms of cold and snow; 08-09 is another example. Some just are flat-out awful like 99-00 and 11-12.

I seen 70/71 produced some amazing figures on the mainland, wasn't that great here (compared to normals would of been below average), just shy of 3m though still not too shabby though compared to most places!

I say my guess of us getting 3.86m this year may be a bit high, does depend how much mixing me see and that bit of luck with the storm tracks.

It's too bad meters are not in our vernacular when describing snowfall around here.

I know your pain, I lived in Southern England for 30 odd years prior to living here, some winters barely see a flake, you would get excited seeing 2cm there!
