    Funnily enough not long after my last post the council had been round with their very heavy duty snowblower and widened all the streets around up here, they don't usually bother with the ones around here as they are only around 4th priority out of 5 on their list (1 being highways and main roads, 5 being very minor streets) and as long as it's wide enough for 2 vehicles to pass safely they leave it. I think they made it worse though as it's left a 3 inch layer of hard ice about 3 feet wide at the edge of each road which seems a real skid hazard if you venture onto it (before you had no choice but to stick nearer the middle of the road which was totally clear just with 3 feet high snow banks either side), this isn't going anywhere for a few days at least as it's turned much colder,

    Think we have potential for more snow over the weekend maybe snow to rain though, Thursday looked good a few days back for more snow (10cm) but seems like the low going to far south now and will just deliver a few flurries maybe some minor accumulations.

    In other news, pretty much looked that way for most of the year and 2012 has been officially named the warmest year on record in St Johns.

    Best time lapse I've seen so far.    

    February 15th Storm   Hello All,   Well its been quite a few weeks lately, we've had huge amounts of snow here in New Brunswick, the most I've seen in the 8 years I have lived here. I think in les

    I wish our downgrades were like that

    Major Great Lakes snow squall event shaping up for Sunday, map shows my forecast (in inches for U.S. readers earlier today) ...

    post-4238-0-39250600-1358556217_thumb.jp

    SNOWFALL (IN) FROM 00z SUN JAN 20 to 12z MON JAN 21

    Winds will increase from SW 30-50 km/hr to W-NW 50-80 km/hr with higher gusts and there could be zero visibility in some heavier squalls.

    The low itself will bring 4-6 inch (10-15 cm) snowfalls to western Great Lakes increasing towards a maximum of about 30 cm in Ottawa and Montreal (almost none of the snow depicted northeast of Lake Ontario is lake effect).

    Then squalls will develop rapidly in the very cold surge of arctic air and spread a long distance inland on strong winds, from wide open Lakes Superior, Michigan and Huron, including Georgian Bay, and later Lakes Erie and Ontario (into U.S. regions).

    The storm reminds me of a major event on 1-26-1971 that set daily snowfall records of 50-75 cm in parts of central Ontario and stranded many people for days as roads could not be cleared of massive drifts. That event lasted 3-5 days but most of the snow fell in the first 24h after the low had passed.

    Temperatures in this case will be near 2 C until midnight Saturday then will be falling steadily to about -8 C in places like Toronto and Detroit by late Sunday afternoon, and further (-15 to -20) by Sunday night. Outside the snow belt, lows of -30 to -40 C can be expected by Tuesday morning to the north of a Lake Ontario to central Maine line and -20 to -30 C south to outer suburbs of the major U.S. cities, where it could fall below -18 C (zero F) despite almost no snow cover. This will be quite a change in the weather south of the Great Lakes, in northern areas it is more like the final blow in a series of heavy punches that have seen 50-100 cms of lake effect in some parts of upper Michigan and central Ontario in the last few days.

    The National Weather Service has extended the wind chill warning for Northeastern Minnesota until noon Tuesday, Wind chills to near 50 below zero are possible this morning, and again tonight.

    A less-severe wind chill advisory is in effect for Northwestern Wisconsin until noon Tuesday, for wind chills possibly falling as low as 40 below zero.

    Temperatures around the Northland this morning included 26 below zero at Crane Lake; 24 below at Ely and Orr; 23 below at International Falls; 20 below at Hibbing and Two Harbors; 19 below at the Duluth airport; and 13 below at the Duluth harbor.

    That's not counting the wind chill. A wind chill of 50 below zero was recorded this morning at the Grand Marais airport, according to the Weather Service, with 44 below zero at International Falls and 43 below at the Duluth airport.

    While this latest dose of cold weather is producing some of the lowest temperatures the Northland has seen in a couple years, it probably won’t set any record lows in our area. The record low for today’s date is 33 below zero at Duluth, set in 1883, and 46 below zero at International Falls, set in 2011.

    Some exceptionally low temps being recorded over the NE States in some cases twice as cold as your average deep freeze appliance near -40c, ouch!! The current weather affecting the UK is positively tropical in comparison.

    Check out Mount Washington obvs -37c with sustained winds of 70mph!

    Tuesday's low was -45 C at Lansdowne House ON which is about 300 km north of Lake Superior in far northern Ontario, this morning that frigid air is all the way down into eastern ON, with little modification (-38 C at Algonquin Park about 200 km WNW of Ottawa and -30 C at Ottawa around sunrise). The 850 mb temperature is shown as -36 C over western Quebec.

    Nothing record-breaking in the northeast U.S., -20 F at Saranac Lake NY is probably 10 degrees above a record for date, and about 10 F (-12 C) in the large cities on the east coast. Part of the reason for the sharp decline in the severity of this cold is bare ground on the coastal plain, lake effect snow has whitened the ground to about the height of land in the Appalachians so it's creating a pseudo-front and encouraging a thermal low over the Great Lakes today. That may bring locally heavy snow where southeast winds come in from open water on the colder side of the pseudo-front. West end of Lake Ontario for example could see local 10-15 cm but most places will stay bone dry. There are just 10-20 knot wind gradients with this feature then a weak low from the plains states will arrive on Friday bringing another 2-5 cm and perhaps a bit more if it can tap on any Atlantic moisture off Long Island. That one will develop considerably over the weekend and perhaps pose a threat to Newfoundland by Sunday.

    Not as cold in Alberta as in Ontario now, although mostly on the cold side of the weak front that lies along the east slopes of the second mountain range (Selkirks) waiting to shift back to the Rockies today and then a snowfall of 10-15 cm possible in parts of Alberta tonight and Thursday (Edmonton to Red Deer most potential).

    There's a 1060 mb high sitting around north of the Bering Strait that is trying to decide which way to go, part of it may retrograde soon or try to come over the North Pole towards Svalbard. May be the source of any February cold spell in the UK although Siberian cold might come from another player, high pressure over Mongolia also showing some signs of retrograde drift, nothing very set about this, but I am expecting the milder spell approaching Europe to last about 7-10 days then whammo (I think that term was used once before).

    Ironically, Chicago has had very little snow this winter. I imagine it would have been even colder there had there been a significant cover on the ground.

    Apparently we have had around 1.6 metres of snow so far this season in St Johns, which is a touch (around 15cm)above average at this stage of January. Interested to see of we can post above average (around 3.5metres) snowfall totals come the end of the season. Around 1 metre of it has come in January and must be heading for below average month in terms of temperatures, early winter was poor for cold and snowfall though. Looks like snow may be limited for the last few days of the month, we had a chance for a big storm this weekend earlier in the week but looks like will all stay out at sea, the middle of next week looks like a brief warm up with maybe a snow to rain event. February will make or break winter for me here, the first half of the month looks like it has potential. It's far from what would be called a bad winter so far though January has been pretty cold with snow in the air most days and the big storm (50-60cm) on the 11th along with a couple of minor all be it still significant storms.

    50-60cm!! I would love to experience that.

    50-60cm!! I would love to experience that.

    St Johns actually escaped the worst of this storm, 70-90cm was reported in some spots a bit further West!

    It's my 2nd winter here and the biggest single storm I've seen here and also said to be biggest single storm since 2006 here. Amounts of 20-30cm are common place but not many winters produce a storm like that.

    I must admit though it was a bit anticlimactic as milder temperatures (4/5 degrees) and drizzle/fog immediately followed and lasted for 3 days was a huge slush fest, most of it melted almost as quick as it came. Because there was such strong winds too (70-110kmph) we got lots of snow but it all gathers in huge drifts in sheltered spots, you could still see grass on exposed areas and barely a snowflake on roofs and trees, not really your picture postcard look, more give you a bad back from digging out the big drifts!

    There is a good write up of the storm here with some cool pics:

    You're right it doesnt even make the news here unless we talk about minus 40oC which happens every winter for a week usually....not as bad as Edmonton but still not really newsorthy here. Its not called the Geat Whote North for nothing....

    Hey Roger, what do you mean by a pseudo-front? You mentioned it a couple times?

    Some of these Great Lakes thermal lows take on shadowy and very weak frontal characteristics, temperature differences are more to do with off-lake transport (in this kind of pattern the Lakes are basically leaking heat into the boundary layer at an astounding rate) and the dynamics are very shallow since there is no upper level support (except that some strong Lakes thermal lows begin to create changes in the whole profile, this very deep low on the charts now south of Iceland had part of its origin in the system we were discussing.)

    Oh but they do!..that's the thing what you have to remember most buildings including most commercial buildings are timber framed over here..so fires are fairly common place all year round...and when they happen in the depths of winter hey presto you end up with scenes like you saw in Chicago.

    Satellite Image Shows Eastern U.S. Severe Weather System

    01.30.13

    A powerful cold front moving from the central United States to the East Coast is wiping out spring-like temperatures and replacing them with winter-time temperatures with powerful storms in between. An image released from NASA using data from NOAA's GOES-13 satellite provides a stunning look at the powerful system that brings a return to winter weather in its wake.

    On Jan. 30 at 1825 UTC (1:25 p.m. EST), NOAA's GOES-13 satellite captured an image of clouds associated with the strong cold front. The visible GOES-13 image shows a line of clouds that stretch from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast and contain powerful thunderstorms with the potential to be severe. The front is moving east to the Atlantic Ocean.

    Big winter storm on the go here now, pressure to rapidly deepen over the next 24 hours to maybe sub 950mb.

    Giving most of NL rain and wind gusts in excess of 100 maybe up to 130kmh later, snow and blizzard conditions into Labrador.

    Latest satellite image, looks immense around 9am Monday:
