    Weekly Long Range Update

    Here is my latest forecast model interpretation for the first three weeks of December........





    As of Thursday night, a band of steady snow continued from northern BC through central Alberta as warmer, Pacific air was trying to move up and over the cold, Arctic air mass currently in place. Snow will taper off across the Edmonton area Friday morning.

    I will issue an update on the lake effect snow event that is coming for this weekend as the Arctic air arrives from northwest to southeast. A second shot of cold air will arrive into eastern Canada for the middle of next week, which should be good news for ski areas that are preparing to open for that weekend.

    By the way, parts of northern Newfoundland had hurricane force wind gusts earlier Thursday morning. One location along the north coast had gusts to 137 kmh or 85 mph! Farther to the southwest there was blizzard conditions over interior and parts of western Newfoundland.
