End Of Snow?

Staff Recommended Posts

Looking at a few different weather sites and looks like mild weather showing on all of them for the next 10-14 days.

Is this the end of snow for southern ontario?

Snow can happen out of the whim with no apparent reason what so ever.  So maybe it is or maybe it is not, but not bloody likely this is the case even if there is no accumulation you are likely to get flakes at some point.  In my area the last days of winter is a watch to see if climatologist wise if the temperature will end with normal values despite the snow drought.  Meteorological winter ended for the nearest airport 0.1 degrees below normal after the calculation of December to February medians.

I was in Whitby yesterday and we had a brief snowfall didn’t amount to anything.

Similarly to plowguys observations, this morning there was about 1cm accumulation here , it burned off after the air warmed above freezing. 

I expect at least one more decent snowfall, it’s still early but spring is definitely in the air.

I’d be surprised if there wasn’t at least one more snowfall before the season is over. In fact take a look at the 18z GFS.

It would be end the season nicely with the storm of tommorow for here.

18z GFS takes it south. The core of the cold is displaced further east as well.

EC drops our snow chances down to 40%

Friday snow forecast looks promising for you there. I got an email from Jay Peak says they are expecting 15 " by Saturday.

Ya well , il say that it was promising , i went from 18-20" to 2" of snow.

Let's see what tommorow brings though perhaps the intensity of the storm will just give some more surprises.

Looks like a nice string of spring like weather for my area.  No snow in site.  Ill take it.  The sun feels awesome.

Let's just say the NAM tends to overstate snowfall amounts. The GFS text shows a bit of snow in the Quebec-Windsor Corridor, but temperatures are forecast in the low-to-mid 30's Fahrenheit, so don't expect much accumulation, except maybe for Quebec City.

Significant rainfall is expected today.

Periods of rain will continue today. Rainfall amounts of 25 to 40 mm are likely by this evening when the rain is expected to change to snow. Snowfall accumulations of 2 to 4 cm are possible which may lead to untreated roads becoming snow covered and slippery.

Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Keep children and pets away from creeks and river banks.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

Snow began at 11 pm, temp on the zero mark.

big chunky flakes have everything covered with a cm. 

Lets see how much accumulation over night and how it looks in the morning. 

 

Winter wonderland. Trees are coated. The ground  thawed in various degrees so the depth varies as well. Roads bare, grass has a couple cm, other vertical surfaces are 2 to 4 cm. Temp on zero still at 8:30 am

Wont last long

This mean then that your last accumulating snow might be as far as March 31st this year :classic_blink:

Yes I thought we were finished accumulation for this year. 99.9% of the ice base had disappeared except a few shady places that don’t get direct sun. Now the same spots have snow again. Most open areas burned off with the sun today. 

I haven’t looked ahead to the long range forecast models, maybe even will see some more in the next couple weeks. Over night temperatures still go below freezing.

Had brief sun showers throughout the day, snow falling and melting at the same time.
