lots of damage occurring around the CN Tower in TO.
One of the glass pedestrian bridge walkways has been smashed with ice falling off the tower....there are several visible holes punctured in the Skydome roof, a car that is smashed up, and some damage to nearby buildings that have been hit with chunks of ice.

Wet snow starting to fall in north Richmond Hill/ Oak Ridges

Ice starting to melt.

lol...yep...sounds about right.

My backyard rain gauge started at 10mm of rain in it before this event. It's at 120mm now. And by no means is my gauge appropriate for ice pellets.... I'm actually surprised it captured as much as it did.

yea, this stuff sucks. I did my sidewalk and about 1/3 of my driveway today and that's it. No chance I'm doing the rest. It's drifted 20-30cm deep on the upper half of the driveway. Wed looks sunny and 9. That'll wipe it out in a hurry.

Plow poop was particularly heavy and sloppy today. I did mine and two of our neighbours drives with my snowblower...it was exhausting.

counting all, rain, ZR, pellets, snow, has this storm set some kind of record?

Also by area, affects all of Southern Ontario, part of Northern Ontario, nearly all of Southern Quebec and the Maritimes.

There's still a small bit to go, according to the April 17, 00Z GFS text output. Southern Ontario gets some precip (part 1) overnight 17th/18th, a bit of a break, and then afternoon/evening of the 18th, through the night of the 19th (part 2). For Ottawa/Montreal/Quebec, part 2 stretches through the 20th. The details...
  • London/Waterloo/Hamilton - almost all snow for parts 1 and 2, but the temperature is hovering around freezing, so don't expect accumulation.
  • Toronto - almost all snow for part 1. Mixed bag of rain and snow for part 2
  • Ottawa - Mostly snow for part 1 and almost all rain for part 2
  • Montreal - Rain and snow for part 1 and almost all rain for part 2, going out with a bang (literally) with thunderstorms evening/night of the 20th
  • Quebec - "Distinct forecast" laugh.gif Part 1 starting off with rain, turning to snow evening of the 17th. Part 2 all snow.

This has to be included as one of the dirtiest "winter" storms for quite some time.

Everything including Kitchen, bath and laundry tubs
Sunday night there we had at least four good bolts of lightning but didn't hear thunder.

Yesterday I was able to clear off the driveway and walkway with the help of my snowblower but it was difficult work even for the machine. It didn't stall it but the compacted wet pellet mix was much too dense for the design of the augers to throw.

Rain was still falling yesterday here, I hope EC will include Monday precipitation into these tallies:

Amazing storm....just looking back over some Hamilton data. Winds hit 91km/hr Sunday making this our second day in April with winds over 90. We hit 98km/hr here on Apr 4. Pretty impressive to break 90k twice in 2 weeks.

Total YHM precipitation was 83mm over Fri-Sat-Sun.
The compacted pellet depth listed above for Hamilton of 15cm is accurate based on my attempts at measuring. It's just a slab of ice....I didn't even attempt to remove the half of my driveway where it drifted to a foot deep.
It'll melt quick if the sun comes out tomorrow or Friday.

Some final stats for this storm for Barrie

Total ice pellets/snow= 21cm
Highest drift measured= 52cm
Total rainfall= 35mm
Wind gusts= 80km/h
Hours below 0c= 40

*This was the largest snowfall of the entire season here!

---because of this storm, our snowfall numbers go from below normal to above normal. A total of 242cm of snow I've personally measured here this season, above the norm for South Barrie which is 225cm. Despite this, our snowmobile trail system shut down in mid Feb due to the insane warmup. So while this was our biggest snowfall , it was simply a nuisance and offers no benefit to the local economy or to anyones enjoyment. Essentially just a late season pain in the *bleep*.
