Yikes.
Hopefully the forecast from NOAA verifies instead:

Re: Alberta weather - 2018

For Nunavut, drought conditions were not analyzed. When did the snowpack become above normal? The date on the map is Jan 31st so hopefully the extra snow has eased some of the drought in the BC interior. The drought in southern Sask is real and for now is a concern... until they get some rain. Jan ...

Re: Alberta weather - 2018

A roof at an arena in Calgary has collapsed this afternoon. I assume the weight of the snow on the roof was the primary cause.

Welcome Nimbuscile. :lol: sums up our weather. Thanks. Long time lurker (several years); first time poster. I signed up so that I can continue to see the maps you guys post and to encourage someone to create a 'go fund me' to help finance a date between Hawk and W101. I'm thinking White Spot, a cou...

Re: Alberta weather - 2018

In the Canadian prairies we could use more moisture as well. Here is the map for Canada as of Jan 31st: cdm_1801a-eng.jpg That map looks cool, but looks like complete bunk. The drought somehow stops at the NWT/Nunavut border like that? Yukon/NWT border? The snowpack is normal or above in all of BC ...

Latest GFS run is showing widespread heavy snow possible on Sunday too.

Re: Alberta weather - 2018

Shades of spring/summer 2011 and 2012 in the central plains. Shaping up to be a very hot and prolonged summer if this continues. Hoping for spring rain. Did you live on the prairies for a time? Yep, you guys could do with a good soaking. Haven't lived on the praries. I've passed through a couple ti...

Re: Alberta weather - 2018

Here is the drought map for the USA. Looking at these may give a clue as to how the storms will be this coming thunderstorm season. Most of the moisture for thunderstorms in Alberta and Saskatchewan comes from crop moisture (evapotranspiration) locally and also from the USA. Rarely does moisture st...

Re: February 2018 Current Conditions and Forecasts

I would check radar on Tuesday morning and during the early afternoon for a few isolated convective snow flurries coming off the Georgia Strait. East side of Vancouver island is more likely to get a few flurries but it is not out of the question for western sections of Metro Vancouver. Not saying it...
