That could be a term used to describe most of Canada right now including our fair little town. Or it could also be used to describe the mass of cloud, wind, and rain/snow mustering in the Pacific. Check out the North Pacific pressure/satellite image below and you’ll see what I mean.
Even though EC is saying we’ll only get 5cm of snow tonight and 5 tomorrow morning plus 25mm of rain tomorrow afternoon, I’m going to put my money on the cold air sticking a little closer to home, giving us another relatively big dump.
I would highly recommend if you haven’t already to get out sometime today and shovel your walk, try to clear any buildup on your eavestroughs, and if you have a storm drain near you, clear that too… it’ll make a huge difference if we get a big downpour of rain.
