This has been modeled by most models for a little while now.
Here's the latest 12z GFS total snowfall for this storm:

Well it looks like parts of southern Ontario and southern Quebec could be in for quite the strong clipper-type system (it's very much a polar jet disturbance) this weekend, with decent amounts of snow, and very strong winds potentially. Overall the winds and potential blowing snow could be the bigger story as well as Lake-effect during and in the wake of the storm, but it could prove to be quite the storm system.
Here's probably one of the more impressive images from the latest 18z GFS at hour 96:
Here is the latest 18z GFS total snowfall for this event:
The 18z GFS tracked a bit further south and stalled a bit more than the 12z, which would produce an even better scenario as seen from the snowfall forecast.
Should be fun to track!

Been a little while since I posted, with school starting and all, and a rather dull weather pattern. With the string of clippers, this one has caught my attention as it could be a bit stronger and have a bit more moisture associated with it, particularly for Ottawa and Montreal.
06z GFS snowfall:
Also watching for a potential east coast storm around hour 168-192, but will wait a little while more.

Well, now that just about everyone has seen some November snowfall, it appears we may see our first real clipper type system of the season in parts of southern Ontario and Quebec.
Here's a look at the 12z NAM total snowfall for it:
Ottawa and Montreal do decently with 5-10cm.
12z GFS snowfall:
Much drier with general amounts of 2-5cm.
Hi-res NAM at hour 60:
Given the projected track, I'd say 2-5cm is a decent possibility in Ottawa and Montreal with perhaps up to 8cm. For Toronto area and further south it looks like more of a wet snow with the low tracking to the north and general amounts of a trace-3cm are more likely at this point.

Well, I think no one has created this thread for fear of it not coming true, but I think it's silly to be posting all those images about this storm in the fall thread so here it is.
Here are some relevant images that haven't been posted (recently) in the fall thread:
12z UKMET at hour 144:
PNA, NAO, WPO and EPO forecasts:
Of course, there are many more things to be posted, but thought this was a good start.
