A tale of two lows giving significant snowfall Thursday into Friday.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
==discussion==
An Alberta clipper will combine with a Texas low to bring a
significant snowfall to most of Southern Ontario. Light snow will
begin from west to east Thursday with heavier snow Thursday night
into Friday.

Current indications are that the highest snow amounts will occur
north of a line from Grand Bend to Hamilton to Kingston. General snow
amounts of 10 to 15 cm are possible with this event.

Lower snow amounts are expected to the south of this line with 5 to
10 cm possible. There is also a risk of freezing rain over the
Windsor to Chatham areas Thursday evening.

Winter driving conditions will likely deteriorate significantly
Thursday night.

There is still some uncertainty as to the exact tracks of both
Lows, which will affect the timing and snow amounts for each region.
Environment Canada is monitoring this system closely and will issue
further statements as necessary.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as
warnings may be required or extended.

WOCN14 CWHX 061608
Special weather statement issued by Environment Canada at 12:08 PM
AST Wednesday 6 February 2013.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Special weather statement for:
=new= New Brunswick.

High winds, snow and blowing snow for Saturday mainly for the
Southeast.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
==discussion==
Forecast guidance is indicating that a low pressure system near Cape
Hatteras on Friday will deepen rapidly as it sweeps up the atantic
coast to pass south of Nova Scotia on Saturday then move towards
Newfoundland on Sunday.

This storm will give strong northeasterlies to the southern part of
New Brunswick, and periods of snow and blowing snow mainly to the
southeast. It should start late on Friday with most of the snow on
Saturday. It is too early for good estimates of snowfall amounts,
but some guidance is indicating amounts in excess of 20 to 30
centimetres are possible for Southeastern New Brunswick.

Strong northeasterlies and northerlies over the gulf of st.
Lawrence may also give higher than normal water levels, and will push
pack ice into north to northeast facing shorelines.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as
warnings may be required or extended.

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment
Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca

WOCN16 CWHX 061946
Special weather statement issued by Environment Canada at 4:16 PM NST
Wednesday 6 February 2013.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Special weather statement for:
=new= Newfoundland.

Snow, blowing snow and high winds are expected Thursday
Afternoon and evening.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
==discussion==
A low pressure system will track towards Newfoundland Thursday
morning and will rapidly cross the island as it intensifies Thursday
afternoon. A strong cold front will then follow behind it.

Snow will develop ahead of this system near noon Thursday for most
areas of the island and will be followed by strong westerly winds in
the evening. Snowfall amounts are expected to only be near 10
centimetres, however the snow will fall over a very short period of
time. Winds are expected to gust near 80 km/hour and there is
potential for gusts up to 100 km/hour. This heavy snow and strong
winds could give whiteout conditions for Central and Northeastern
Newfoundland for a few hours late tomorrow afternoon and evening.
Meanwhile snowsqualls are expected to develop over the west coast on
Thursday afternoon and are likely to give whiteout conditions in snow
and blowing snow.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as
warnings may be required or extended.

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment
Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca

SIGNIFICANT SNOWSTORM THREATENING THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
==DISCUSSION==

AN ALBERTA CLIPPER CURRENTLY TRACKING SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH THE
DAKOTAS IS EXPECTED TO TRACK ACROSS THE US MIDWEST TONIGHT AND
THURSDAY THEN TRACK JUST SOUTH OF LAKE ERIE ON FRIDAY. THIS CLIPPER
MAY INTENSIFY INTO A WINTER STORM AS IT APPROACHES SOUTHERN ONTARIO.

SNOW AHEAD OF THIS CLIPPER WILL START SPREADING INTO SOUTHERN ONTARIO
FROM MICHIGAN AND LAKE HURON ON THURSDAY WITH PERHAPS A COUPLE CM OF
SNOW BY THURSDAY EVENING IN A SWATH OF REGIONS EXTENDING FROM LAKE
HURON TO WESTERN LAKE ONTARIO.

AS THE CLIPPER GETS CLOSER, LATEST INDICATIONS SUGGEST IT WILL
INTENSIFY THURSDAY NIGHT, WITH AN EXPANDING AREA OF HEAVY SNOW
EXPECTED TO MOVE INTO MOST OF SOUTHERN AND PARTS OF EASTERN ONTARIO.
SOME FREEZING RAIN AND ICE PELLETS ARE POSSIBLE OVER THE EXTREME
SOUTHWEST.

SNOW, HEAVY AT TIMES IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE WELL INTO FRIDAY AS THE
STRONG CLIPPER SAILS BY JUST SOUTH OF THE GREAT LAKES.

MANY PARTS OF SOUTHERN AND EASTERN ONTARIO MAY RECEIVE 15 CM OF SNOW
FROM THIS STORM BY FRIDAY EVENING. SOME AREAS MAY RECEIVE HIGHER
AMOUNTS, WITH 25 CM NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION. THIS WILL DEPEND
ON THE EXACT TRACK AND INTENSITY OF THIS LOW, AND ENHANCEMENT IN
THE COLD EASTERLY FLOW OFF OF LAKE ONTARIO FOR EXAMPLE. TOTAL SNOW
AMOUNTS MAY BE SOMEWHAT LOWER OVER THE EXTREME SOUTHWEST DUE TO SOME
FREEZING RAIN AND ICE PELLETS.

BRISK EASTERLY WINDS WILL ALSO RESULT IN BLOWING SNOW IN MANY AREAS
THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY.

TRAVELLING CONDITIONS WILL DETERIORATE AND BECOME HAZARDOUS IN THE
SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY. THERE MAY BE A
SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THE COMMUTE TO WORK ON FRIDAY MORNING AND
POSSIBLY FRIDAY AFTERNOON IN HEAVY SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW.

THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY AS TO THE EXACT TRACK AND INTENSITY
OF THE LOW, WHICH WILL AFFECT WHERE THE HEAVIEST SNOW FALLS. HOWEVER
THE MANY OF LATEST COMPUTER MODELS HAVE CONTINUED TO SUGGEST A MORE
INTENSE VERSION OF THIS WINTER STORM IS POSSIBLE.

ENVIRONMENT CANADA IS CLOSELY MONITORING THIS SITUATION. THE
WINTER STORM WATCH MAY BE EXPANDED FURTHER TO THE NORTHEAST
AS THE EVENT DRAWS CLOSER. WARNINGS MAY ALSO BE ISSUED FOR MANY
REGIONS AS WELL.

REFER TO YOUR LOCAL PUBLIC FORECAST FOR FURTHER DETAILS.

I hope its not another drama queen fake storm that will dump only 2 cm of snow as always, Toronto "blizzards" are notorious for that.

No one has used the term "snowmagedden" yet so that means it'll be a good dumping.

Last I heard was 20+ inches between Providence and Boston. We'll be lucky to see 12 inches along the west end of Lake Ontario.

And I care why? I wasn't responding to the OP I was responding to the post that had my data.

Snowstorm from Southern Ontario to Atlantic Canada
February 06, 2013; 5:42 PM
Very busy day here today in the office doing snow warning. I have found some time to issue my thoughts on snowfall.
We favor a blend of the GFS and the ECMWF model for this storm. The expected track of the initial, primary storm is quite favorable for significant snow across southern and eastern Ontario before it gets absorbed by the coastal storm.
Heaviest snow for the GTA will be late Thursday night into midday Fri, then lighter in the afternoon.
Heaviest snow for southern New Brunswick, through PEI and Nova Scotia will be late Friday night into Saturday with blizzard conditions.
This storm should be all snow for Canada, though a little mixing initially near Windsor.
Sarnia, Ont....10-20 cm
Windsor, Ont....6-14 cm
London, Ont....10-20 cm
St. Catharines, Ont.....10-20 cm
Hamilton, Ont.....15-25 cm
Kitchener, Ont.....15-25 cm
Brampton/Toronto, Ont.....20-28 cm
Barrie, Ont.....20-25 cm
Bracebridge, Ont....8-12 cm
Peterborough, Ont....20-28 cm
Kingston, Ont.....15-25 cm
Cornwall, Ont....12-22 cm
Ottawa, Ont.....10-20 cm
Montreal, Que....10-15 cm
Pembroke, Ont....6-12 cm
Sherbrooke, Que....6-12 cm
Quebec City....2-5 cm
Southwest Nova Scotia.....25-35 cm
Much of the rest of Nova Scotia, southern new Brunswick and the eastern two thirds of PEI....20-30 cm
Fredericton, NB.....10-20 cm
Moncton, NB......18-25 cm
Bathhurst, NB.....4-8 cm
