Must be December in Canada ...
« on: December 01, 2006, 05:44:17 AM »
Freezing rain warning for:
City of Ottawa

FREEZING RAIN AND ICE PELLETS DEVELOPING EARLY THIS MORNING AND ENDING THIS AFTERNOON OR THIS EVENING. THIS IS A WARNING THAT AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF FREEZING RAIN IS IMMINENT OR OCCURRING IN THESE REGIONS.



A MAJOR WINTER STORM LOCATED OVER INDIANA THIS MORNING CONTINUES TO SPREAD A BROAD AREA OF PRECIPITATION INTO SOUTHERN ONTARIO AS IT IS MOVING TOWARDS THE PROVINCE TODAY. AS THE STORM HEADS NORTHEAST IT WILL COLLIDE WITH A COLD AIR MASS LEFT IN THE WAKE OF A COLD FRONT THAT WENT THROUGH YESTERDAY. THIS WILL CAUSE THE PRECIPITATION TO BRIEFLY BEGIN AS SNOW BEFORE TURNING TO FREEZING RAIN OR TO SIMPLY BEGIN AS FREEZING AND ICE PELLETS IN A WIDE SWATH EXTENDING FROM LAKE HURON TO THE OTTAWA VALLEY EARLY THIS MORNING..THEN SPREAD NORTHWARD AS SNOW LATER THIS MORNING. SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF FREEZING RAIN ARE POSSIBLE IN AREAS COVERED BY THE FREEZING RAIN WARNING. CURRENT INDICATIONS ARE THAT UP TO 20 MILLIMETRES MAY FALL. THE RELATIVELY WARM AND WET GROUND IN THE WAKE OF YESTERDAY'S RAIN AND THE RECENT MILD SPELL MAY LESSEN THE AMOUNT OF ICE ACCRETION ON ROADS AND SIDEWALKS. HOWEVER THE ACCRETION ON TREES..POWER LINES..AUTOMOBILES AND ANY EXPOSED OBJECT MAY BE SIGNIFICANT. THE FREEZING RAIN SHOULD CHANGE TO RAIN OR SNOW DEPENDING ON THE AREA LATER THIS AFTERNOON IN THE WEST AND EARLY THIS EVENING IN EASTERN DISTRICTS. NORTH OF THE FREEZING RAIN AREA..THE PRECIPITATION WHICH SHOULD START LATE THIS MORNING WILL REMAIN AS SNOW AND COULD BE MIXED WITH ICE PELLETS THIS AFTERNOON. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS IN THIS AREA ARE EXPECTED TO BE BETWEEN 15 TO 20 CENTIMETRES. ADDITIONALY..REGIONS JUST NORTH OF THE FREEZING RAIN AREA SUCH AS BANCROFT - HASTINGS HIGHLANDS - DENBIGH..THE SOUTHERN PORTION OF BARRY'S BAY - KILLALOE AND RENFREW - ARNPRIOR - CALABOGIE ARE EXPECTED TO RECEIVE BETWEEN 10 TO 15 CENTIMETRES OF SNOW AND ICE PELLETS AND THE PRECIPITATION IS ALSO EXPECTED TO CHANGE TO FREEZING RAIN FOR A FEW HOURS EARLY THIS AFTERNOON. AS THE LOW MOVES NORTHEAST THROUGH SOUTHERN ONTARIO INTO SOUTHERN QUEBEC THIS EVENING..VERY STRONG POSSIBLY DAMAGING SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS OF 60 GUSTING TO 90 KM/H WILL DEVELOP NEAR THE EAST END OF LAKE ERIE AND OVER PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY NEAR LAKE ONTAIRO. THE VERY STRONG WINDS WILL DIMINISH SOMEWHAT OVERNIGHT AS THEY SHIFT INTO THE WEST. IN THE PICTON - SANDBANKS PARK AREA WINDS WILL SUBSIDE A LITTLE LATER ON SATURDAY MORNING. ONCE THE STORM CENTRE HAS MOVED INTO SOUTHERN QUEBEC THIS EVENING IT WILL TAKE THE PRECIPITATION WITH IT LEAVING A FEW FLURRIES IN ITS WAKE. MOTORISTS SHOULD EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION AS HAZARDOUS WINTER DRIVING CONDITIONS ARE LIKELY ESPECIALLY ON UNTREATED ROADS. STRONG WINDS NEAR LAKES ERIE AND ONTARIO WILL ALSO MAKE DRIVING DIFFICULT. TRAVEL PLANS SHOULD BE ALTERED ACCORDINGLY.

Daniel,

That shit is coming down to Michigan, we had temps near 70 degrees earlier this week..you could have kept this to yourself  :D

Stay warm my friend and be careful if you plan to be on the roads.

Got my snow tires on this morning. Not a moment too soon. Hurry up and snow already, or at least don't rain anymore.

Jan - "freezing" in july? lol, I think that freezing is a relative term!  I have lived in Sydney in the middle of 'winter' when everyone there was walking around in parka's and scarves complaining about the "freezing" weather while i was out in a t-shirt and shorts every day.

Calgary has already had at least 2 feet of snow this season and it's not even winter yet! our most recent heat spell was when it went up to -1, for about 9 hours. Then it was straight back to -18 again... I would love some freezing rain as that would imply it was warm enough for water to be liquid SOMEWHERE in or above the city. Snow behaves in a very odd fasion at -20 and below... after you drive on it for a while it develops the consistancy of liquid graphite. we're at 400 accidents and counting since last friday!

What a difference a day makes.



This was the view from my window at 8 this morning. Sun's up and it will be a very cold day,
but at least the wretched sleet of yesterday is just a distant memory now.

It was in the high 60s here in Columbus, Ohio... All of a sudden it drops and its in the 20s and 30s...

BRRRRRR!   But then I don't mind the cold.  It's the snow I hate!
