  1. January 14-15th Clipper System

    It happens from time to time. Not that unusual. Of course as I say that I can't think of any examples. The thing is the "periodic" episodes usually involve 1-4" type snowfalls so they're not exactly memorable.

    Lake Ontario really helping this winter along.
  3. January 14-15th Clipper System

    You got a nice ESE flow going. Too much southerly component for me. That band has refused to sink south, although it's made occasional intrusions. About 2" here in the west end.
  4. January 20-22nd Winter Storm

    Trend this winter is for the models to be too slow/amplified with the northern stream in the D5-7 range. Right now models are indicating a partial phase of streams which causes this storm to deepen well to the NW. If the northern wave outruns the southern one we could see a further south solution play-out. A number of the 6z GEFS point to this solution (although a number also support the OP run). Not saying this will happen this time. Just a trend I've noticed in 17-18. I wouldn't write anything off yet.

    Couple of inches of synoptic, couple of inches of LES. 2-4" looks good. Could get some lollis north of that.
  6. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    I was walking to work this morning when the front passed. It was pretty cool. The winds rapidly picked up, the fog that was in placed rolled out to the east with the front (there was this valley to my west that was mired in fog and almost instantly became visible) and you could feel the nip against your skin as the temps tumbled 4-5 degrees. One of the stronger fropa's I can remember.

    Cotton balls pounding down for the last 1/2 hour. National loop is inducing hallucinations of a further NW track but I don't think that's reality (at least not enough to help us). If we can get anything >1" out of this it's a success. Looks like we're closing in on that mark now.

    Better move or find another hobby then. Cause it ain't gonna get any better.
  9. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    Final call for mby: DAB. Enjoy the storm friends!

    East? Anyway...RGEM caved. Flurries it is. edit: I guess you mean Niagara.
  11. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    Just a nudge to get into 3-6". And I'd take it. I hate going into the deep freeze with bare grass.
  12. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    Well...the RGEM is sort of on its own here. Would need other models to come on board with the amount of amplification it's showing.
  13. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    6z RGEM is a bit more robust than the rest of the guidance. 0z UKIE/6z GFS would only need a 30-40 miles push to the west to give Toronto a moderate event Friday night. Still have a heartbeat with this one. Wish the northern stream would dig a little more and at least partially phase with the southern wave.

    People on twitter are going to catch a lotta flack too. But there's a nuance I think a lot of people miss. There's a difference between someone forecasting that much snow, and someone merely showing a model that was depicting that much snow and outlining the potential.
  15. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    Doesn't feel as bad to me for whatever reason. I've grown sort of numb to it.
