gonna be a messy day tomorrow:

Rain warning
Storm surge warning
Wind warning for
Antigonish County issued

Northwesterly winds gusting to 90 km/h will develop Sunday afternoon and evening.

A low pressure system along the eastern seaboard is forecast to intensify as it moves towards the Maritimes tonight and Sunday.

Rain will develop tonight in the tri-county area and spread northeastward overnight, reaching Cape Breton Sunday morning. Rainfall amounts of 50 to 70 millimeters can be expected by Sunday evening for most of Nova Scotia. Strong easterly winds will develop ahead of this storm with gusts to 80 km/h expected along coastal areas, winds will strengthen behind the low to 90 km/h from the northwest in the wake of the low.

In addition higher than normal water levels and pounding surf can be expected along the western shore Sunday afternoon. Elevated water levels are expected Sunday night along north facing coastlines of Pictou Antigonish counties including St Georges bay and Cape Breton.

NB is getting snow:

Snowfall warning for
Oromocto and Sunbury County continued

Up to 20 cm of snow expected tonight and Sunday.

This is a warning that significant snowfall is expected in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..Listen for updated statements.

A rapidly deepening low pressure system will track just south of Nova Scotia on Sunday. Significant precipitation and strong winds will accompany this system. Along the Fundy coast precipitation will fall mainly as rain at times mixed with snow with a total amount of near 50 millimetres expected. Over western regions of Southern New Brunswick cooler temperature will result in the precipitation to fall mainly as snow at times mixed with rain. Total snowfall amounts over those regions could reach up to 20 cm.

In addition higher than normal water levels and rough or pounding surf can be expected Sunday evening along parts of the Northumberland strait from Miramichi southward

It was -2.7C yesterday morning which the coldest recorded temperature we have this season. It amazing how fast plants/flowers die after the first frost.:( You go to bed, everything is fine. Then you wake up and everything is dead.:(

Only went up to 5C with overcast skies today. Goddamn cold!

The Canadian warmspot was North Cowichan, BC at 13.6C.

So weird to hear about places getting snow when Calgary has yet to see any snowfall. We've had a couple of flakes at higher elevations but absolutely nothing on the ground. It still feels like mid September as a result. And I wouldn't be surprised if we go past mid-November with nothing sticking.

Then - WHAM. I bet this is the year to buy a snowblower out here.

It's been raining cats and dogs all day in Moncton, fairly high winds around noontime, but they have calmed down. The cloud deck was so thick this morning that my satellite radio stopped working!!

Finally getting a few flakes of snow now (4 PM), but it won't stick. Hard to believe they got over 80 cm of the stuff in the Catskills, Berkshire Hills and in southern New Hampshire!!

Atlantic Canada is far enough east that the weather can be pretty dramatically different. Similarly Newfoundland and the Maritimes can be hit by different sets of storms depending on how they track.

Atlantic Canada is far enough east that the weather can be pretty dramatically different. Similarly Newfoundland and the Maritimes can be hit by different sets of storms depending on how they track.

Exactly:

We stick out into the North Atlantic so our weather can be significantly different than on the rest of the Atlantic seaboard. It should be noted however that this is both a good thing and a bad thing. We tend to have a more temperate climate than northern New England, but we are also more prone to nor'easters and hurricanes than New England is.

Most of NB has a typical continental climate, but southeastern NB, most of PEI, all of NS and the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland have a Maritime climate significantly influenced by our proximity to the ocean.

Especially in the late fall and early winter, it can be warmer in the Maritimes than in the non coastal areas of the mid Atlantic states. I've seen it warmer in Moncton than in Atlanta (and this happens routinely at least 6-10 times per year).

It's not surprising that most of the Maritimes experienced this storm as a rain event.

Not sure what the official high will be, but it was 17 in Calgary according to my car today. One day until Halloween and it's bloody warm as hell outside. Windy at hell too - 60-70 km/h gusts at least.

Extremely cold for October last morning... low of -3.9C. That is the lowest October temperature recorded in Montreal since 2002.:( But at least we didn't get any snow.:rolleyes:

Today was a very pleasant day... 10C and clear blue skies.:tup::cool: The trees in front stay green until mid-November so hopefully we don't have too many frosty mornings...

:previous:yeah, we had a great Halloween over here on the west coast as well. Was completely sunny, 11 in the afternoon and 7 during the trick or treating hours. Plus we had a few good gusts of wind to blow the leaves around, the perfect Halloween setting.

PS - About half the trees around here are currently at or nearing their full fall colours (such as the Broad Leaf Maple). Very vibrant colours this year for our area (nothing like out east, but still pretty). The other half are still green. All the banana tree leaves are still out as are the fig tree leaves (both are good indicators of a first freeze since they are killed off at around -1) So nothing so far.

Lytton and Victoria are on the freeze list now. Victoria airport just under at -0.2 this morning. All of the Victoria proper stations have yet to freeze though.

That is Vancouver, Windsor and Charlottetown left I believe.

Anyone who makes it to November is pretty good.

What is interesting is how much later lytton froze than all the other interior locations, that goes to show how the Canyon still has a slight coastal moderating influence compared to the Thompson and Okanagan valleys.

Lytton got to be the windiest place in Canada (based on my observations:P)... even at night the winds are blowing pretty hard. Hard to freeze when the wind is moderating the temperature at night.

These lists are always a bit misleading because, while some stations are pretty good, others are not very representative. The station being used for Halifax is over 30 kilometres away from the city centre. The average first day of frost within a 30 km band of the NS coast probably varies by about 2 weeks.

Similarly occasionally you'll see people using a downtown weather station with a huge urban heat island effect for one city (particularly Toronto or Montreal) and then an airport type of station for other cities.

Lake effect snow also varies a lot.

A nicer way to do this would be to have more sample points/weather stations and to do some sort of interpolation (I've debated doing this with the EC data). Or just have satellite maps.

Yep, realistically right along the coast by Vancouver Island I doubt they have seen 0 yet. Brier Island, NS has only hit 2.6 C so far but inland some places have hit almost -2. Actually the colder than average nights are when you tend to see the biggest differences on the East Coast. A very cold winter night might go below -20 in the interior of the province but only be -13 or so on the coast, for example.

There was lots of frost in Burnaby this morning.

The Prairies cities (except Edmonton I think) got some snow this weekend. Nothing out of the ordinary but first accumulation nonetheless.

Not even a trace of snow in Montreal so far... usually we get our big snowfall early December (or late November).

However we often get a flurry or two late October-early November that counts as a trace.

This year is the latest we've been without flurries since 1994 (November 7) where we recorded the first trace on November 22.

No snow in Edmonton yet, no moisture of any significance for a few months.

We have now set a new record for latests snow fall. Not expecting any until at least next Friday. Closest snow fall was the airport which reported flurries Friday.

Balmy weather with us until Friday

http://www.thespec.com/news/local/article/621154--balmy-weather-with-us-until-friday

So it’s November already and people are walking around in short sleeves and tank tops.

After a glorious weekend, for this time of year anyway, Hamiltonians have been holding off on their woolies to see if Monday is a record breaker.

Well, no, it won’t be unless the earth’s axis shifts us closer to the sun.

Environment Canada’s forecast for Monday is a balmy 14C tops.

But it’s no record breaker. That honour goes to Nov. 7, 1975 when a city wearing seasonal clothes sweltered at a record breaking 19.4 C.

That’s the Nov. 7 mark to beat this year.

Still, Environment Canada says Hamilton has a pretty decent week coming up, with light southwest winds and a high of 14 Monday. There is a slim chance of rain overnight and a low of 9.

Tuesday should be cloudy, with a 30 per cent chance of rain but a high of 12.

Wednesday is more of the same, cloudy and a high of 14 followed by a mix of sun and a high of 14 again on Thursday.

To be taken with a truck-load of salt. In fact, scratch that. Just put this in "off the deep end" category.

According to Accuweather's long-term forecast, Ottawa will see 195cm of snow between the 19th and the 20th of November.

That.

Would be epic.

For those spots that have hit the 19-20 rnage the last few days, it probably qualifies as a genuine Indian Summer, since it's already been pretty cool with frost the last few weeks.

Anyways, been nothing special here, cloud, rain, some sun, today was at least decently mild at 12 to 13 degrees.

7C and mainly cloudy with the sun peaking here and there. The Southern Ontario/Southern Quebec microclimate in autumn is really starting to show... Snowing right now in North Bay and Sudbury.

It is kind of surprising cities like New York City, Windsor, Kansas City, Chicago received flurries (or accumulating snow) before us.

The Canadian warmspot was Cheticamp, Nova Scotia at 20.1C. They had a dewpoint of 17C!!! Very impressive for mid-November.

I hit an intense snowsquall driving through Woodstock on Hwy 401 yesterday morning. Several cm of snow were already on the ground. All the frozen precipitation in southwestern Ontario so far this season has been lake-effect.

New record high broken today!!!:cool: This is turning out to be one of the best autumn we've had.;) I've turn the heat off which almost never happens in November.

The low this morning was already 10C.

18C and sunny early this afternoon and then it became a mix of sun and clouds later in the day.
Official temperature was 18.6C which breaks our previous record of 17.2C in 1959.:tup: It's the warmest temperature so late in the year since 1990.

The Canadian warmspots were Huntingdon and St. Clothilde, Quebec at 19.5C. Montreal was #5.:)

BTW-The warmth didn't quite make it to Southern Ontario (even if they were above normal), the 10 warmest stations today were in Southern Quebec.

:previous:I would not be surprised if Eastern Canada is having one of their warmest Novembers ever. Every time I look at the forecast, especially in southern Ontario and Quebec, the temps are consistently well above normal.

At the same time, we here in the west have been getting the majority of our days below normal, and it is indeed snowing at the higher parts of Metro Vancouver today (such as Burnaby Mountain).

City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park
3:24 PM MST Wednesday 16 November 2011
Winter storm warning for
City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park issued

Snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 centimetres and blowing snow expected for Thursday.

This is a warning that dangerous winter weather conditions are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions...Listen for updated statements.

An intense low pressure system is expected to develop in Southern Alberta east of Red Deer by Thursday morning. On the northern edge of this system a band of heavy snow will form extending from Grande Cache through the city of Edmonton and surrounding regions to the Lloydminster region. 10 to 15 centimetres of snow is expected by Thursday evening along this band. In addition the system will also generate strong easterly winds. The strong winds combined with falling snow will reduce visibility due to blowing snow.




Good thing I got AWD and Nokian WR's!!

Blizzard still blowing here, visibility down to 50-60 ft. no flights in or out. and to add to the fun there's a bear wondering around town. so we are advised not to be outside.

You know it windy when the building shakes. and it really skews the pressurization testing.

Canada is pretty much covered in white right now except for two coasts, Southern Ontario and Southern Quebec which is normal for late-November.
