I'm on vacation at Horseshoe valley, and we got about 3 or 4cm overnight from the little clipper. It's been snowing off and on all day. Lots of wet snow in the trees now.


I like it there, 20 mins from my front door.

Still thinking the majority of the squalls are going to be in the Midland/Orillia area north and Kincardine north on the Huron side. I still don't believe they are going to be that intense (just not cold enough) but there will be some accumulations (10-15cm) in the above noted area's . Thinking as well there might be a better chance of heavier squalls once we move into Saturday night/Sunday morning when the temps. drop a little and we get a more NW wind coming off the lakes .

Next week is looking promising as of tonight (Thursday/Friday) with a drop in temps. and a good NW flow but it's still a little far out to be sure .

Reasonable squall locking on Barrie at the moment, looking like proper winter again out there. Going to be off and on though, and yes most of the activity will be to the north of here.

No kidding eh ? Impressive squall forming from Lions Head on the Bruce down to just north of Barrie at the moment with a movement north . Sunny skies here with a bit of accumulation from an earlier squall

few flurries in Hamilton today!
A decent squall up near K-W looks to have a shot at impacting the Hamilton-Burlington area if it can hold together. Would be nice to see something white on the ground again!

All melted on contact, but still looked great out there.

Barely a flake here in Alliston, sun was out most of the day. Temps around 1C. It wasn't bad at all, how did Barrie fare from the squalls?

Radar showing the Orillia/Port Severn area in the heaviest band from GB right now. Another band coming in off Huron from Kincardine down to Mount Forest and just north of Orangeville.

We had about 3-5 cms first thing and that was it. Think we will get a bit more this evening, then tomorrow evening, round off about 10-15cms. The clipper looks promising at the moment.

Got a trace of snow last night, it was enough to put a little white down. Not much though.


Looks like a band of snow will drop southeast from Huron and GB later this afternoon with the passing of the cold front, will change wind direction to more NW allowing for some heavy flurries to develop this evening in the Collingwood/Wasaga area SE to Barrie, Innisfil, Cookstown, Newmarket and Angus zones. Will also affect most areas east of Lake Huron as well including London.

A general 3-6cm is possible from the band. Additional amounts of 2-10cm could accumulate tonight

^ Same as Travis for general accumulation(20km NW of Alliston) but expecting a bit more later today and into tomorrow .

Any thoughts from the group on possible squalls next week ? Wind and temp. models are still looking good for Wednesday into Friday with some significant squalls to develop over the southern G Bay snow belts as well as the south east Huron belts like London and Goderich . Still maybe a bit early but the possibilities are there .

Travis, are you thinking a general 3-6 cms? I ask only because 3 cms is kind of the line for us...more and a plow first. TWN and EC are both 2cms or less for Brantford. As always any thoughts are helpful.
