As we all know, us Canadians have our own way of doing things. So when it comes to the weather we make no exceptions. The invention of the Humidex scale was developed to reflect the contributions of humidity to the core temperature. The US uses heat index to factor in relative humidity, and AccuWeather has created a real feel scale to combine a number of related factors.
Humidex is by far the outlier as it consistently indicates warmer values than the other scales, so the question remains: Which scale is most reflective of the human experience?

Hey Brett, although we missed your usual support and guidance to tell us what to think...I'm gonna just go out and congratulate the folks of the forums cuz it looks like we did a pretty good job tracking and forecasting this one.
Here in Hamilton the major bands of the storm have yet to move in, but the light amount on the ground and the moderate rate at which is falling is translating into blizzard conditions at times already with the SUPER strong gusty winds. I can only imagine what its gonna look like once the intense snow moves into the region....which bring me to my next point.
Brett, you are located in State College, correct? According to the radar you guys have been getting absolutely hammered with very heavy snow for hours, and are still in the midst of the brunt of this storm. I would love to see pics, vids or even a written update on the situation on your backyard as you seem to be baring the brunt of the storm at the moment.
Everyone else is welcome to post their storm observations and accumulations if the other folder gets too busy.

How much snow has this recent and epic squall event dumped on your area. Descriptions and pictures would be great!!!
Also with the coming additional snow events this thread could be used to tally your ongoing snow depth!!

We have been all anticipating the arrival of our favourite Canadian season for weeks now and it looks like it will finally be locking into place this week across a good half of the country. The Arctic boundary containing subfreezing air will blast through Alberta as soon as tomorrow (Monday) night bringing with it a significant swath of snow (20cm) to places just west of Calgary and up to 10cm in the city itself, early this week. The cold will continue to blast eastward through Saskatchewan and bringing with it light snow...but the REAL Arctic air doesn't arrive in Saskatchewan until a little later in the week with another wintery shot of snow and intensely COLD temperatures. Temps will plummet into the mid minus teens for daytime highs for cities including Regina and Saskatoon (who have been experiencing heavy snowfall this past week with a solid 20cm). These temps will fall toward the minus 20's though the overnight!!!! The Winter pattern in this region looks to be locked in pretty much with temperatures remaining well below freezing throughout the long range.
Now if that is not sign that us folk in Southern Ontario are getting close to Winter than I don't know what is. By late week we will also experience a drop in temps (to a much lesser extent however) nearly reaching the zero degree mark in suburban regions for daytime highs. There is also a chance for some flurry/snow activity (albeit light) throughout the weekend sometime.
We are one step closer to good Old Man Winter.
Post you comments and observations as we near the season of snow

Temperatures today were hot for the so called "break" from the heat. We reached 30C at my place, but humidity was much less of a factor today (3-4C of humidity). Starting tomorrow however, the humidex will start to rise into the upper 30's once again and will exceeed the 40C mark come Wednesday. This may very well be the second heat wave to strike S.Ontario within a week.
This is shaping up to be one sultry summer, that's for sure. Another day, another heat wave...I say bring it on!!
