Starting this.
Believe we will see some decent snow at Lee of the lakes.

Overnight temp minus 6 to minus 10 in Barrie area should help keep it on ground

Got this in my in box this morning from Environment Canada. I can see some areas getting something that will stick, but 20 cm.... any ideas? I did hear that when the front comes through, there will be a period of "blinding snow".

From what I can see and I am no expert but have lived in the Georgian Bay snowbelts all my life is that the winds are aligning just right on Thursday night to bring this area 10-20cm . I'm sure Travis will chime in here to give us a squall forecast .

I thought it was worth showing the graphic, I am sure it will get fine tuned as we get closer but it looks like winter may show us a glimpse of what's ahead!!

Couldn't agree more , many people in the snow belts will be waking up Friday to "Winter"

The one thing that seems positive for snow potential is that temps overnight are going to be very cold.
The lakes are toasty still

Wow, that streamer extends down the 400 and 404. If that verifies it could be commuter chaos depending on the time as a sizeable amount of people probably still don't have their winter tires on, or stupidly don't use them at all.

Media outlets should be urging people to get them on today (Wednesday) and all day Thursday before the snow flies lol

According to the Weather Network:
"Lake effect snow squalls will diminish late Thursday night and Friday as high pressure with dry air builds in but flurries will linger well into Friday southeast of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, Gillham says.



The flurries are, at the moment, expected to be intense, but relatively short-lived. Still, it will make for a difficult drive for the the worst-hit areas.

"Under the most persistent bands, I expect that we will see 15-30 cm of snow and the bands of lake effect snow will extend into parts of the GTA potentially including Newmarket, Aurora, Markham and Ajax. Travel will be hazardous along part of the 400 and 404," Gillham says.

This is short lived, and off Georgian Bay will probably stay just to the West of Barrie, like many times last year. Borden, and Stayner could get 15cms or more, Barrie, 5-10cms, higher on the Western fringes. Bands will defintely extend down to Newmarket, and the Northern GTA at the beginning.

I'll have a map out later tonight with my thoughts. Lots of wind sheer I'm seeing which could pose a problem for some of those higher amounts. I'm liking Collingwood to Angus to Cookstown (Hwy 89/400) down to Newmarket for highest amounts off GB.

More later

Map for tomorrow's event. Looks to begin in the evening and persist into Friday AM. Lots of sheer limiting intensity but more importantly creating lots of movement. Bands will be all over the place. Could spread the fun out for more places, lots of white front lawns Friday morning.

Best chance at substantial (15cm) accumulations will be in a line from Collingwood SE towards Stayner, New Lowell, Angus/Essa Township, and down towards Cookstown. Northern GTA is in the 2-5cm zone, Toronto just a trace.

EC has a Winter Weather Travel Advisory going...

QUOTE
10:43 PM EST Wednesday 08 November 2017
Weather advisory in effect for:

City of Toronto

Winter Weather Travel Advisory in effect for Thursday.

Snowfall and rapidly falling temperatures could affect road conditions late Thursday afternoon or during the evening.

A cold front is expected to track over Southern Ontario Thursday. As this front passes, temperatures will drop below the freezing mark and scattered rain showers will change to flurries. As a result, untreated surfaces could become icy and slippery.


Actually, almost all of southern Ontario has something issued. Yellow is a watch, and grey is a statement...
