Weather forecast
« on: June 19, 2012, 09:28:01 PM »
Bizarre weather forecasts again this week.

Monday afternoon suggested hot Tuesday, hotter the rest of the week with the possibility of rain and thunderstorms on Weds and Friday.

That's why we decided to head to the zoo Tuesday.

By Tuesday morning, while the expected temperatures were much the same, the earliest possibility of rain or thunder was now Saturday; three days later than originally.

A few hours later on Tuesday the rain/thunder possibility is now tonight!! ???

Until last night we've not had thunderstorms even though they've been forecast almost every day for a couple of weeks.

Okay, to be fair, it's mainly been "chance" of thunderstorms rather than likely. But even so, there must have been ten or more chances and none taken.

Tuesday morning I woke to news reports of heavy rain expected to start in the morning. Logging on to TWN, this was confirmed and there was actually an Environment Canada severe weather warning for high rainfall and a good chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon.

Where was it?

We delayed our plans until Wednesday. For nothing.  :(

I've said it before...the forecasting here is definitely getting worse.

Although someone else may have dug yours out?


Those bleeping key things could come in handy.

In the last week or so we've had rainy thunderstorms forecast on three days.

We had no rain let alone thunderstorms.

'Crippling' storm could be headed to the Maritimes

CBC meteorologist Peter Coade says his charts remind him of White Juan

CBC News , Mar 23, 2014

It may be spring, but a major storm looks like it will hit the Maritimes on Wednesday, bringing with it strong winds and blizzard-like conditions to large swathes of the region.

CBC meteorologist Peter Coade says the storm could be "crippling," and might bring as much as 40 or 50 centimetres of snow.

He said when he looks at his charts it reminds him of White Juan, the enormous blizzard that swept across Atlantic Canada in 2004 and dropped a metre of snow in some areas.

Alerts for: Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick

10:32 AM ADT Monday 24 March 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:

Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick
Winter storm forecast for Wednesday.

A very intense low pressure system is forecast to track near Nova Scotia on Wednesday. Very strong winds and significant snowfall are expected with this system. The heaviest snowfall and strongest winds will affect the southeastern half of the province.

The snow is forecast to begin Wednesday morning and is expected to taper off by early Thursday morning. Strong winds are forecast to develop ahead of the system on Wednesday and persist as the system pulls away Thursday. The strong winds and snow will cause reduced visibility in blowing snow.

Although there is still considerable uncertainty with respect to exact snowfall amounts, computer models are consistently indicating significant accumulations. There is good potential for parts of Southeastern New Brunswick to see total snowfall accumulations exceeding 25 centimetres with this system.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings. Warnings will likely be issued by Tuesday morning.
