Lots of excitement regarding the snowstorm heading up into Ottawa and Quebec. There's also been a smattering of chatter of potential lake-effect snow behind it (see Brett's map). A quick look at some of the models shows that there will be squalls of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, but how strong? How much snow? Will London get smacked again, or will the effects be felt elsewhere?

This was posted from EC this morning. I haven't looked at ther models yet. Thoughts from our squall watchers?

Special weather statement updated by Environment Canada at 10:32 AM
EST Sunday 10 November 2013.
Special weather statement for:
=new= Mount Forest - Arthur - Northern Wellington County
Watford - Pinery Park - Eastern Lambton County
London - Middlesex
Newmarket - Georgina - Northern York Region
Uxbridge - Beaverton - Northern Durham Region
Huron - Perth
Dufferin - Innisfil
Grey - Bruce
Barrie - Orillia - Midland.
Snow squalls possible Monday night.
An Arctic cold front will sweep through Southern Ontario on Monday.
In the wake of this front, northwesterly winds will usher in the
coldest air of the season and temperatures will struggle to rise
above the freezing mark on Tuesday. This cold northwesterly flow
over the relatively warm waters of the Great Lakes is expected to
create favourable conditions for the formation of snow squalls
southeast of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. Current indications
suggest that snow squalls may begin forming Monday evening and
continue into Tuesday.
Environment Canada meteorologists will continue to monitor this
developing situation closely and may issue a snow squall watch if

Just curious about something...EC and TWN are calling for temperatures on the 26-27th of May to be in the low 30°'s C. When I look at the GFS , it shows temps in the low-mid 20's, and MyForecast also shows this. Which models are EC and TWN using, and what do folks more knowledgeable than me have to say about next weekend's forecast? What are the chances of T-storms? I'm seeing a slight chance based on the convective and CAPE, but if it is going to be that hot with more humidity (maybe up to 80% on Sunday), is there a greater chance than what the early models are showing?
I'm learning a lot about meteorology and forecasting from this forum, and I appreciate any guidance that those with more experience can provide.

EC has posted snow squall warnings in Ontario for areas from London-Middlesex up to the Bruce, over to Orilia, and across to Niagara. 2-4 CM, but higher amounts I suspect in some areas. Post your observations and pictures. Predictions?

Post your observations. I'll upload any interesting pictures that I may take during the day. I'd be interested in seeing shots taken by other folks around the region.
