Snowstorm spreads East
March 17, 2013; 6:48 PM
Special Sunday p.m. update.....
The storm which has been producing steady snow over the southern Prairies will head towards the arrowhead of Minnesota on Monday.
A secondary, coastal storm will likely form near Long Island, NY on Tuesday and then track northeastward toward eastern Maine by early Wednesday.
Expect a general 8-15 cm (3-6 inches) across southern Manitoba through Monday morning, including Winnipeg, with locally higher amounts just to the north. However, even as the snow winds down midday Monday, the combination of increasing winds and low temperatures will result in widespread blowing and drifting through the day Monday, resulting in poor travel conditions due to low visibility and snow covered roads.

Farther east..........
Snow will spread from southwest to northeast across southern Ontario starting in the mid-morning in the south then getting up into the GTA around 3 pm or so.
This particular region (from the GTA on south/west) will likely be caught in between the storm over northern Minnesota and the developing one near the Northeast U.S. coast, so while there will be steady precipitation, it appears that the best dynamics for heavier precipitation will be over northern Ontario and from eastern Ontario/Quebec into New England then the Maritimes.
Snow will gradually change over to sleet then rain in the Windsor area by afternoon then the Niagara region sometime during the evening. I do thing the snow mixes over in London, but temperatures may hover at or below the freezing mark for the event.
In general, expect about 2-8 cm of snow from the GTA on south, but 2 cm or less south of London.
Areas right along the lake from Hamilton to Toronto will probably barely get above the freezing mark for a time Monday night, leading to a brief change to rain. Then as the winds shift and colder air works in late it will probably go back over to intermittent snow.
Areas such as Kitchener and just barely north/NW of Toronto itself could see the snow mixing with or changing to sleet for a time Monday evening, then back to snow Monday night. Again, most of the snow will be of varying rates and intermittent Monday night.
Snow might also mix with some sleet/ice in the Kingston area late Monday night for a few hours due to the downsloping wind.
This storm should be basically all snow north of a line from Goderich to Orangeville to New Market and just south of Peterborough to just north of Kingston.
Once into southern Quebec there will be some Atlantic inflow of moisture into the system so the snowfall rates will pick up on Tuesday.
The Accuweather.com snowfall map shows the expected snowfall from this storm as we head through Wednesday.

We may have to adjust the amounts higher across coastal New Brunswick, parts of Nova Scotia and PEI Tuesday night as I fear that a band of heavy precipitation will just surge northeastward before the lower level cold air leaves. Once that heavier band shifts northeast the snow might just end or change to drizzle, but not before a quick-hitting dump of snow. I will address this Monday morning.
Ski areas are no doubt reaping the rewards of this blocking pattern! Should be an extended season for many.

==DISCUSSION==
A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM FROM MONTANA WILL TRACK EASTWARD ACROSS THE
DAKOTAS TONIGHT THEN INTO MINNESOTA MONDAY. AS THE SYSTEM ADVANCES
EASTWARD, SNOW IS EXPECTED TO MOVE INTO AREAS NEAR THE MANITOBA AND
MINNESOTA BORDERS THIS EVENING.

AREAS WEST OF THUNDER BAY WILL RECEIVE THE MOST SNOW WITH 5 TO 10 CM
EXPECTED TONIGHT AND UP TO AN ADDITIONAL 10 MONDAY. IT IS POSSIBLE
THAT TOTAL ACCUMULATIONS MAY EXCEED 20 CENTIMETRES BY MONDAY EVENING.
THESE SNOWFALL AMOUNTS ARE BELOW THE WARNING THRESHOLD OF 15 CM PER
12 HOURS.

SNOW WILL MOVE INTO AREAS NEAR LAKE SUPERIOR AND NORTHEASTERN ONTARIO
BY MONDAY EVENING. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS UP TO 10 CM ARE POSSIBLE MONDAY
NIGHT IN THESE AREAS.

ENOUGH SNOW MAY FALL TO CAUSE DRIVING CONDITIONS TO DETERIORATE AND
BECOME HAZARDOUS AT TIMES DUE TO ACCUMULATING SNOW ON UNTREATED
ROADS. GUSTY WINDS WILL ALSO GIVE REDUCED VISIBILITIES IN LOCAL
BLOWING SNOW. MOTORISTS SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION AND ALLOW FOR EXTRA
TIME TO REACH THEIR DESTINATION.

This is just another dump on top of the snowpack in SASK and Man.

We already have well over 4 feet of snow on the ground here and according to the Man officials, it's also water logged.

I think that if the warm-up (starting next week; long range on WN shows steady above zero by the end of the month) is rapid, then the minor to moderate risks of flooding along the Assiniboine might very well become moderate to major....

Darn, almost looks like 2011 all over again. Anyone want to buy a house? Guaranteed beachfront property.

Absolutely, it's rare in these parts. Despite this, we've had snow on the ground every morning this week in Fort Erie. It's unusual to say the least. People are growing tired of it quickly.

A MESSY MIX OF PRECIPITATION FOR SOUTHERN ONTARIO WITH A SIGNIFICANT
LATE WINTER SNOWFALL FOR NORTHERN SECTIONS AND EASTERN ONTARIO.

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

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM FROM THE SOUTHERN PLAINS STATES WILL MOVE
NORTHEAST TO INDIANA MONDAY MORNING THEN TOWARDS SOUTHWESTERN
ONTARIO BY MONDAY NIGHT. AS THIS DISTURBANCE GETS CLOSER, IT WILL
SPREAD A WINTRY AND MESSY MIX OF PRECIPITATION INTO SOUTHERN ONTARIO
ON MONDAY. SNOW MIXED WITH ICE PELLETS ALONG WITH SOME FREEZING RAIN
WILL BEGIN IN SOUTHWESTERN ONTARIO MONDAY MORNING. ICE PELLETS AND
SOME FREEZING RAIN WILL SPREAD NORTHEAST THROUGH THE AFTERNOON
POSSIBLY REACHING AS FAR NORTH AS A LINE FROM KINCARDINE THROUGH
BARRIE TO COBOURG MONDAY EVENING. PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED
TO CHANGE OVER TO MAINLY RAIN FOR A FEW HOURS ESPECIALLY NEAR LAKE
ERIE AND ONTARIO AND ACROSS SOUTHWESTERN ONTARIO. SNOWFALL
AMOUNTS WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL LIKELY RANGE FROM A COATING NEAR LAKE
ERIE TO 2 TO 5 CM ACROSS THE GREATER TORONTO AREA TO WATERLOO
REGION AND STRATFORD AND 5 TO 10 CM FURTHER NORTH TOWARDS SOUTHERN
GEORGIAN BAY.

OVER EASTERN ONTARIO AND LOCALES NORTHEAST OF GEORGIAN BAY, LATEST
INDICATIONS SUGGEST A SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL FOR MONDAY NIGHT AND
ESPECIALLY TUESDAY AS THE DISTURBANCE CONTINUES TO WORK ITS WAY
NORTHEAST THROUGH THE REGIONS. INDICATIONS SUGGEST CLOSE TO 10 CM
FOR AREAS NORTHEAST OF GEORGIAN BAY AND 10 TO 20 CM WITH POTENTIAL
FOR HIGHER AMOUNTS OVER EASTERN ONTARIO BY TUESDAY EVENING.

MOTORISTS SHOULD EXPECT DRIVING CONDITIONS TO DETERIORATE
SIGNIFICANTLY ONCE THE PRECIPITATION ARRIVES. HAZARDOUS WINTER
DRIVING CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED AS UNTREATED ROADS MAY BECOME
SLIPPERY AND SNOW COVERED, AND VISIBILITY IN AREAS OF HEAVIER SNOW
MAY BE QUITE LOW.

COLDER AIR WILL BLAST IN FROM THE WEST ON TUESDAY IN THE WAKE OF
THE DISTURBANCE, WITH FLURRIES AND COLDER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES
EXPECTED. WINTER WILL HANG ON AND KEEP SPRING WELL TO THE SOUTH
OF THE GREAT LAKES FOR THE TIME BEING.

ENVIRONMENT CANADA IS CLOSELY MONITORING THE SITUATION. FREEZING
RAIN WARNINGS FOR PARTS OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO, AND SNOWFALL WARNINGS
FOR PARTS OF EASTERN ONTARIO MAY BE ISSUED AS REQUIRED.

THE PUBLIC IS ADVISED TO MONITOR FUTURE FORECASTS AND WARNINGS AS
WARNINGS MAY BE REQUIRED OR EXTENDED.

Looks like the GTA will get a few cm of snow, with some rain and pellets mixed in. Ottawa could get...

•what would be considered a major dump by Torontonians
•what would be considered an average snowfall event by Ottawans

Fixed.

That said, I'm a person that enjoys winter but this will be the third 20+cm snowfall in four weeks and we've got LOTS of snow on the ground at the moment. It'll be good for farmers and the water table after last year (virtually no snow and then 90+ days of drought last summer) but it's getting old.

from Brett Anderson, accuweather.com

"Light precipitation has worked up into parts of southwestern Ontario at this time. As of 1:30 pm there was drizzle at Windsor, light rain/freezing rain in Sarnia and sleet in London.

Dry air ahead of the storm has delayed the start time in many areas, especially across Pennsylvania.

I do not have any significant changes for most of Ontario in terms of snowfall and type from what I discussed yesterday.

Again, the best snowfall will be across southern Quebec and then across Maine and into New Brunswick.

Snow will likely turn to a mix across a large part of Nova Scotia, but not before a small accumulation. Mostly rain across the far southwest corner of Nova Scotia after it starts as snow."

Just looking at last years data, we were 20 C on the 18th of March 2012 and 22C on the 19th !! both records
