After a warm start to the week with some storms around the area, it will eventually turn cooler by Friday, and more seasonal (around 10c) by the weekend.  The GFS model even has a chance of flurries in central and maybe Eastern Ont behind a low pressure system Saturday night into Sunday am:gfs_mslp_pcpn_frzn_neus_23.pngTemperatures will certainly be cool enough Saturday night (around 1c) but not all models agree with the snow theory.

I’m down in Myrtle Beach enjoying a constant high around 26c which makes it feel like summer hasn’t left.  Here are some pictures of the storm damage from Hurricane Matthew; besides the multiple trees and branches down, there was some significant damage to the pier in Surfside, and some damage to beach front homes.  Luckily it was only a Cat 1 Hurricane at the time:dsc_1440


Winter Update

I’ll post my winter outlook next week. The highlights will be a colder winter than last year, and maybe snowier for many.  It will feel significantly worse than last years winter, but really it will be a more typical Canadian winter.

One of my favourite meteorologist, Brett Anderson, at Accuweather posted these maps to give you an idea:


I agree with this mostly, however at times the area of very cold weather could invade central and southern Ontario later in the winter.  I am sticking to most long range models that indicate a closer to normal temperature outlook for most of Ontario throughout the season.

More to come…
