I will discuss the upcoming snow events for eastern and Atlantic Canada later today/this evening.....
Here is what the latest ECMWF long-range model is showing. The cold coming down through the Rockies and Prairies (Feb. 18-24) makes sense and agrees with the GFS pattern as a strong ridge builds off the West Coast allowing cold air to dump into the Prairies while a stormy pattern takes place into the Great Lakes region.
Major storm system will bring heavy rain, followed by strong winds, falling temperatures and possible high elevation snow into this weekend over the East.
The 2016/2017 winter forecast for Canada has a snowy look for many.
Early November not looking all that cold, but that could change quickly later in the month.
Update on the two major storm systems approaching the West coast for late this week.
Two significant storms will bring widespread, heavy rain and strong winds to southwest British Columbia later Thursday and again late Saturday.
Clues to the long range into November.
