Snow Forecast Map and Long-Range Update

March 19, 2014; 12:34 AM ET

A storm will track from the Lake Michigan area Wednesday to Quebec Thursday and will bring accumulating snow to the northern Great Lakes, central Ontario, southern Quebec and parts of New Brunswick. The heaviest snow will fall later Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night across Ontario and Quebec then over New Brunswick early Thursday.

Here is my forecast for this particular storm.......

A second clipper-like storm system also has the potential to bring a light to moderate snowfall to southern and central Ontario Friday night then into southern Quebec and the Maritimes on Saturday. Behind that clipper will follow another unusually cold air mass by March standards with a second cold shot possible at the end of the month or at the start of April.

Long range

It looks like the cold will be stubborn into early April as computer modeling continues to show this and the fact that a significant stratospheric warming event began late last week, which argues for cold weather over southern Canada and parts of the U.S. in about two to three weeks.

Do not put the shovels away either as there will be opportunities for accumulating snow over the next few weeks from the Canadian Rockies to Newfoundland.

Looking for warmth? Head to Florida, California or even western Alaska.
