Apparently we are in for some kind of storm. I have heard everything from rain, to freezing rain to lots and lots of snow. As they don't know the track quite yet, they can't pinpoint who will get what. Anyone want to guess what Brockville might get? I'd be interested in your prognostication.

Hi Sheila,

Just looking at the models.

It looks like you guys will get the same system that will affect us early in next week.

It looks like a mixed bag of tricks for you, starting as snow changing to a short period of ice pellets and freezing rain then into rain.
As the system moves out of your area the the wrap around from the low will bring in cooler air changing back to snow flurries.

For us it will be a southerly wind rain event. Almost a repeat of the last even here........

Sou-east gale force winds over the open water all day and evening into tomorrow, a bit of rain along the coast, and fortunately neap not spring tides, taking a foot off the tidal surge.
