One storm over - the next one on the way
We will have a damp and cloudy day today before a brighter Thursday with highs around 1C both days. This will be in advance of the next big storm expected to affect a large area of the US Plains and Midwest into the Great Lakes, Ontario and Quebec. Environment Canada has already posted a Special Weather Statement regarding this next storm, as it will arrive during a heavy travel period across North America. The storm will feature mixed precipitation and strong winds in Montreal and Ottawa starting early Friday and lasting well into Saturday. Depending on the exact track another 15cm or more of snow/ice/rain is expected. This storm will have two other features that the previous ones did not, strong gusty winds and plunging temperatures behind it. There are plenty of details to work out so check back for updates. I will post once again this evening.
