YHM is reporting 2cm of snow yesterday.

Anyone on this board live out that way?
We had a few flakes in the city, but just for a couple minutes and no accumulation.

A total of 12cm here in the south end of Barrie, not bad overall. It looks beautiful out there this morning. Not much squall activity here overnight though.

I'm sorry my response was abrupt! I was going to add a joke to my statement but the phone rang and I posted. Sorry, I do enjoy the light banter on this forum.

It's funny, Facebook pages like Instant Weather Ontario (formally Ontario Blizzard Watch) kept insisting on this being a much bigger event then it was. Right up to the event, their forecasters maps were calling for 20-30cm which I think we can safely say never materialized. I'm not sure why they overestimated, the signs were all there days in advance that this was not going to be anything too organized. Lots of movement in wind direction, and not enough arctic air involved.

Anyways, temps warm up tomorrow but there could be some lake effect flurries develop tomorrow night into Wednesday. But again with highs around 0C, I'm not too enthused about it. By Thursday we are back above 0C everywhere from North Bay to Ottawa and down to Windsor.

Also looking into this coming weekend for some activity. Temps will be a little colder and some NW winds could create a few solid bands. Still lots of time to track that.

Thank you to all of you who take the time to show us the maps and create these threads! I appreciate having the heads up just to be in touch with what might occur. I woke up Saturday morning to a good heaving cement type snow on my car, probably a few good cm's of wet snow and it was snowing then pretty good. I drove down the street, literally one minute from home and there was blue sky! Squalls can be so finicky! I'm just happy to see the white stuff flying around. Much prettier than rain!

Sadly, amateur meteorologists seem to be more popular on Facebook than the real deal. The internet has really caused a huge spread in misinformation, and not just regarding weather.

They do a good job with the hype. Sometimes refer to it as 'wishcasting'.
