I think we in Toronto have to be realistic. Remember that the storm on February 8th was one of the biggest synoptic snowstorms to hit the downtown Toronto area since the Second World War, with only 1944, 1966, 1992 and 1999 ranking up with it. 10-12" snowfalls are rare in Toronto. The models always show us getting a lot of snow - especially the NAM - only to have them back off as the system gets closer. I'm going with 2" with this one.
Yeah but you missed the most recent snowy winter, 2007-08, which did have storms above 12". 2000-01 was also a winter that featured some decent snowfall but i was only in Elementary school at that time so my memory aint that great, lol.
On average, we often do see 6-10" events every Winter, with the outside chance of something greater. Seeing something in the 3-6" is most common by far.
The latest Nam showed something far better than what other models depicted. If it were exploited further I would suspect 5-8" on the Nam in Toronto.
