Seen this one showing up on the models and it looks like it could be a good one for the Maritimes. Still time is needed to determine exact track but a proper nor’easter is in store it looks like.

Looks like a secondary storm tracks towards NL right after this threads storm. That one could be more kind to eastern NL with snow than this first wave.

We got 17cm here, mostly snow with a few ice pellets, mixed to freezing drizzle now but wont last long with temps rising to +6c this evening and staying that way until Wedneday afternoon.. A bit of a wasted snowfall though we might keep some as not much rain foretasted here...if anything it at least boosted snow totals for the month to around 63cm, which is still 25cm below normal but we avoid recording a rare sub 50cm Jan which would of been the worst January since 1998.

I don't know if it will 2 feet but maybe up to 40cm, Shanes location in Cape Breton looked in the prime spot for the most snow with only minimal mixing so be interested to see what totals they get. Looks like some areas West of the Avalon are in for a pile of rain here once it mixes, so with snow down, mild temps, could be flooding there, this was total precip for snow and rain for the storm on the 00z last night:




It has been a tame winter here so far, think were at around 125cm for the season which is 50cm below normal at this point, kids haven't even had a snow day yet!

All part of the roller coaster ride here, we have lost all of the fresh snow from yesterday, infact even much of the solid ice pellet pack from the previous storm has now gone just a few patches and snowbanks remain. Often we can regain snow cover pretty quickly though the next week or so looks storms tracking to our West so rain/mild spells will hope they at least clear the ice away from the trails and can walk them easily again. Remains to be seen how the rest of Feb and March will unfold, but certainly heading towards the tamest since my first full winter here in 2011/12 which chalked about around 260cm, interesting to see if we fair worse than that.

That is very frustrating. Was 2011/2012 your first winter in Canada? Was mine...not the most auspicious of introductions!

Yes full winter, had only sampled a couple of 2 week spells here in winter before that. I thought it was actually an OK winter here especially coming from snow starved UK, it was somewhat below normal snowfall but certainly seemed better than this one so far as we had an early 30cm storm in November 2011, December nothing special though enough snow about and did have a perfect white christmas, January 2012 started slow but we then bagged about 100cm in 8 days from 4 back to back systems, February and March we're pretty tame though we did see another 30cm storm right at the end of the March. I'm amazed I remember all that but guess we put snow events in the memory bank!

As Bigmt always says we're a wildcard in Atlantic Canada and hardest to predict, even in that super el nino winter not long back we bagged about 440cm, I thought this one prior would be more favorable but you never know what will happen here...I'm still expecting a couple of big later season snow storms.

January has been rubbish here. Like you, hoping for something later in the season.
