Growing up in this area, I don't recall ever having snow stick on the ground in November.
We have to keep in mind, the Chatham station only has data since the 1980's while major airports have records since the 1940's at least.

But it's still an incredible cold event. We are forecasted to have snow at temperatures below -3C... this is unheard for us in November.

Sunday was a nice fall day around the Vancouver area. Sunnyish, dry, calm and mild.

The high at Vancouver Harbour was 12 C, the low was 7 C.

Not sure if this was our first hard frost, but it's the hardest I've seen thus far.

Even if the records only go back 40 years, I feel safe in saying that this much cold and this much snow this early is unprecedented down here.


The rain changed over to snow about an hour ago, and it's really snowing hard. Temperature is steady at 0.2C.

Now that it is almost mid-November I would not say I am overly surprised with the wintery conditions (superlatives such as “incredible” would be more appropriate if it were October imo), but yeah that’s definitely early. We received quite a bit of snow in November last year but it was closer to the end of the month I believe.

In Ottawa it would be normal, here it is incredible. There are still crops in the fields, and it could be a real disaster if the temperatures drop like the forecast is calling for. Watch the prices of broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts go through the roof. Farmers were still frantically harvesting corn and soybeans as of yesterday.

Ungh, tell me that again but say it slower this time...

Kidding. But yeah, it's similar. Except half of the houses in my pic are for people on parole (not joking).

Forgot to share this on Saturday. We had a brief but strong snow squall blow through. It didn't stay on the ground, but it was blizzardy for a bit - our first real snowfall of the season.







And, five minutes later...

It got as warm as +3C this morning in Moncton, but the temperature has been falling since. It is now at the freezing point and we have dull overcast. The dirt will be moving in from central Canada this evening, and we are expecting 5-10 cm of snow and ice pellets overnight, transitioning to freezing rain and then rain just before daybreak. Up to +11C tomorrow afternoon before falling to -5C again tomorrow night, likely finishing off with a little flourish of additional snow.

In other words, a typical east coast shit show.

Yes, no doubt Extreme Southern Ontario normally experiences milder conditions in November. But cold and snow anywhere north of KW or Toronto in November is not "that" surprising imo. Ottawa regularly gets some snow in November but it usually melt away after 2 or 3 days. This one will probably melt away too, but it could take longer.

Snow belt areas definitely start getting pummeled in November. They will get some lake effect snow tomorrow and Wednesday, on top of this system.

Extreme SW Ontario’s November snow totals aren't not much different from Toronto, difference is negligible and depends on the weather station you look at, general averages between 4-8 cm. Windsor actually avgs slightly more snow than Cobourg does. Ottawa is around the 20 cm range.

Not exactly sure about Ottawa because 20 cm is quite high, but usually those totals are hit with a couple quick melting wet snow events. What we are experiencing today is historic. This is a full blown winter storm.

After a chilly weekend, we are back up above freezing for at least the next week. Highs ranging from 2 to 12 over the next week, our first week above seasonal in 2 ish months.

Is it strange that I get a Manson Family vibe from this one?

Great photos as usual, mcminsen.

Anybody want to trade places?

In Timmins, ON:

Most of our lakes are now completely frozen over and even the Mattagami River is almost completely frozen over! It may be the earliest in my memory for the river.

The temperature this morning at 7am when I woke up was -20C (almost no wind).

The high today was -12 C.

But wait....it only gets better.

The forecasted low tonight is -20 C and tomorrow's high is -12C. (a repeat of today)

THEN:

The forecasted low for Wednesday morning is -26 C ! If that happens it will be a record low and also tie the earliest date in Fall (November 13) that the temperature has gone below -25 C in Timmins. The latest in Spring date for the temperature going below -25 C was on April 16, 2014 when the morning low was -25.3 C.
