    It's October 12 and already we have a snowsquall warning in our part of Ontario. We're looking at up to 15 centimetres (six inches) of snow, wind gusts of up to 70 kilometres (45 miles) an hour and waves of up to five metres (16 feet) on the Great Lakes. Enjoy! [/extremesarcasm]

    An intense storm over northeastern Ontario is generating a wide variety of significant weather across the province. The disturbance is now stalling over the far north and is forecast to linger there through Friday.

    No more significant rainfall amounts are expected ahead of the cold front going through eastern Ontario this morning.

    Behind the cold front that will be moving eastward out of the province this morning..Temperatures have already started to drop significantly. As the cold Arctic air moves over the warm lakes snowsqualls are expected to develop this afternoon for areas east of Lake Huron and this evening for areas east of Georgian Bay. The snowsqualls are expected to change to showers early Friday morning. Snowfall amounts locally up to 15 centimeters are possible.

    Strong westerly winds will compound the issue with local near zero visibility in whiteouts. A little thunder may accompany the heavier snowsqualls. Please refer to the latest public forecasts for further details.

    We had snow three weeks ago.

    There's a lovely white cap on the Wasatch Mountains as I type this but the high will be about 70 today.
