Yes we are also ahead of where we were last year. But it's important to note that last winter was a back loaded season with the majority of the snow falling between Feb 15th and April 15th .

Last year at this time we only had 46.5cm of snow, then between the 24th of Feb and the middle of April we received 75cm of snow (more than Nov, Dec, Jan, and most of Feb combined).

That was actually one of my biggest pet peeves about last winter. The best of it came right at the end of the season when winter was winding down and it was essentially useless.

Here's a pic from April 4th after 15cm fell:

Compared to December under even more hostile conditions:

Even under the most ideal conditions, snow in April is useless other than boosting totals.

I'm fully expecting a big juicy snowstorm sometime in the next 3-4 weeks now that winter is done and was *bleep*. It will only be fitting to tease us with a storm that immediately melts. Lol

In other news, I've made tons of headway the last 2 weeks on a backyard fence project, and will be turning over soil for a new garden area this week. Will be ready to rock once the warmth is here to stay!

Wonder if we'll get any spring snow??
Saw this illustration from a few years ago in March. Haha...exactly how it always goes down here at that time of year.

Anyone have any ideas on potential lake effect this weekend?
I might be heading up to sauble beach, but with the cold snap and NW winds wondering if it might be buried by then.

Squalls will develop later this afternoon and persist into Thursday morning across the Bruce Peninsula (Sauble north to Tobermory) and then into the Muskoka area. I can see 5-15cm accumulating in the hardest hit areas.

Threats of squalls will persist again Friday morning into Saturday night with a NNW, NW flow. However Im not expecting anything other then bands of heavy flurries. Some places will pick up another 10-20cm over the weekend but it will be extremely localized. IMO the activity will be south of Sauble from Kincardine down to Goderich and into Huron/Perth County.
