Two or maybe three pulses of inclement weather hitting the Maritimes between Friday night and Boxing Day. As usual, Moncton is right on the dividing line and the meteorologists refuse to let themselves be pinned down on the type of precipitation, but it will likely mostly be snow. In any even, it will likely be nothing major, with perhaps 25 cm combined all totaled over the next five days.

Clear and cold is the forecast for the week between Christmas and New Years.

It seems like the entire country is diving into a deep cold starting around the 24th / 25th.

Many cities may also be having a Christmas snow event...

Jesus, all those forecasts took turns for the colder pretty suddenly from previous forecasts.

I am surprised that Edmonton and Regina might not get a white Christmas, but Calgary will. Winnipeg looks close to be snow free too. (it has lots, but it is close to the large area with little to no snow cover on the Prairies)

The snow still hasn't melted. It was supposed to go Wednesday but it didn't stay rainy or mild long enough.

There's still a chance it could be gone by Christmas Day.

The GTHA received 10-15 cm from a storm this morning. In Mississauga there was 11 cm...I measured. Temperatures are staying around 0c and under for now, thankfully.

-12C with a wind of -22C and SNOWING!!! I have seen more sub -10C snow than the last couple of years combined and we're not even January. WILD, WILD weather. Absolutely incredible!

The top 10 weather stories of 2017 are out... and the situation for us is laughably bad. We took over the top 10 and other than #8 which was pretty much the only bright spot this year, everything else was vomit inducing. I see we're continuing the trend right to the end of the year.

3. Spring flooding in Quebec and Ontario
At the beginning of May, flood forecasters across Quebec and eastern Ontario were concerned. In the previous month, several major, slow-moving weather systems had soaked the region with record rains. Over half the snow pack, loaded with water, still needed to melt, and the 7-day forecast called for more showers falling on the partly frozen ground. Instantly, bloated rivers and streams overflowed, and sewers backed up. Several rivers exceeded the maximum amount water released in the past and overflowed from Gananoque to Gaspésie.

The Quebec government claimed the spring downpour was the worst ever recorded in the province over the past 55 years. In Montréal, April rains totaled 156.2 mm − the second wettest in 147 years. Both Ottawa and Montréal had their wettest spring in history – 400 mm or more with records dating back to the 1870s. Spring flooding occurred in hundreds of communities, forcing 4,000 people to leave their homes. Dozens of towns and cities declared states of emergency, including Gatineau, Laval and Montréal. Up to 2,300 Canadian military personnel were brought in to assist with flood preparations and rescue relief.

According to the Insurance Bureau of Canada, spring flooding in April and May resulted in 15,750 claims and $223 million in property damages. In total, more than 5,000 residences were flooded, 550 roads were washed or swept away from floods or landslides, and – tragically – on May 6, two people were swept away by the swollen Sainte-Anne River in the Gaspé region.
...
6. Central Canada’s missing summer
Ontario and Quebec residents knew it was going to be hard to beat last summer’s hot days, record-warm lake water and a season-long stretch of delightful vacation weather. But no one could have predicted what a bummer of a summer 2017 would turn out to be.

Total rainfall from April to July was well above normal in most places, including the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River Basin, where it was the wettest in 70 years of observations. Cool, overcast weather and frequent spring showers continued throughout the summer.

The seasons changed but not the jet stream, stubbornly hanging out south of the Great Lakes for weeks on end. As a result, mid-latitude weather systems continually crossed the region two to three times a week. Every day had a constant and frustrating suite of cool air, endless hours of rain, and an absence of sunshine and continued warmth. Any small break in the cloud cover or occasional warm day raised false hopes that summer had finally arrived.

Farmers who had faced dryness in 2016 were now cursing 2017’s super saturation that left them once again fearing the loss of their crops. By mid-June corn should have sprouted, the first hay should have been cut and baled, and soybeans should have been planted, but agricultural activities remained weeks behind until September.

Even the poor bees, who should have been busy pollinating, were kept hive-bound by the cool, wet weather.

Rain, rain, and more rain filled up every nook and cranny, including waterways like Lake Ontario that reached a record 75.9 metres above sea level in May – the highest it has been since at least 1918. Its rising waters blocked access to the Toronto Islands from mid-May to the end of July, keeping the popular summer destination off limits for both city residents and tourists.

...

7. A new storm of the century
The winter’s worst storm stretched across Eastern Canada striking parts of Ontario on March 13, before moving towards the East into Quebec and Atlantic Canada over the next two days.

The storm led to a multi-car pile-up in whiteout conditions in Brockville that involved 15 transport trucks and other vehicles on Highway 401. Officials closed the highway in both directions as twisted metal covered the road and a highly toxic acid spill polluted the air.

The storm then moved into Quebec, where it dumped 50 cm of snow at over half the weather reporting stations across the south. No previous storm had beaten so many snowfall records in Quebec, with some stations reporting more than a metre of snow.

In Gaspésie, winds reaching 175 km/h caused total whiteouts. In addition, a storm powered by 100 km/h winds along the St. Lawrence River had tragic consequences.

The monster storm took five lives and left hundreds of people stranded in a multitude of accidents across the south. On one stretch of highway in Montréal, 300 people spent the night stranded in their cars.

Moving further east on the Ides of March, the storm still packed enough punch to cripple parts of Atlantic Canada.
...
8. Summer in September
Fall officially arrived on September 22 at 16:02 EDT.

The next day marked the beginning of the warmest period in 2017 across Eastern Canada. From September 22 to 27, over a thousand heat records fell as humidex values shot up close to or above 40, prompting a week-long stretch of heat warnings.

In the lead up to the five-day scorcher, there were two weeks of delightfully sunny, warm and rain-free weather. It was the most beautiful stretch of summer weather in the entire year.

The welcomed warmth went into October with southern Quebec experiencing its warmest month since at least 1870.

The unusual heat across the eastern half of North America was due to a strong ridge of high pressure south of the Great Lakes that caused a large northward bulge in the jet stream.

It’s likely that the four major hurricanes – Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria – that happened earlier in the season shook up the atmosphere, enabling summer temperatures to arrive eventually, even though it was after the autumnal equinox.

Dozens of cities across eastern Canada had their warmest September and October on record.

For some places, September 25 was the By: hottest day of the year and the hottest fall day on record, with peaks between 30° and 35°C. Everywhere you looked there were full patios, people strolling in the sun and crowded beaches without lifeguards.

The abundant dry-warm days were a blessing for farmers harvesting crops and vintners picking grapes. In Annapolis Valley, apple growers had to turn on overhead sprinklers.

To everyone’s dismay, the fall heat wave finally came to an end on September 27 when a cold front swept across the south and brought a much cooler air mass to the region.

The warmspot was Vancouver Harbour at 7.2C.

It was a nice day to get my Christmas shopping started. Sunny, dry, calm and clear enough that a little bit of warmth came through from the sun. Friday's high at Vancouver Harbour was 7 C, the low was 1 C.
