Ontario’s weather forecast is snow AF and some spots could reach 6 inches this weekend



Ontario's weather forecast is snow AF and some spots could reach 6 inches this weekend

It’s starting to look a lot like winter all over Ontario, with snow just waiting in some places.

The weather network forecasts Ontario weather to shell the province with some snow Thursday through Sunday, with up to 6 inches (15 centimeters) on weekends in some areas.

Southern Ontario can expect 5 to 15 millimeters of rain Thursday, with rain turning into “mix or sleet, along with gusty winds” later in the evening.

Northeastern Ontario will experience “sometimes heavy snowfall” on Thursday due to “colder temperatures with the arrival of Arctic air.”

Environment Canada has placed several areas in northern Ontario under winter weather travel advisories, warning drivers who could be caught on icy roads to “prepare for rapidly changing and deteriorating travel conditions.”

On Friday, you may want to bundle up thanks to colder temperatures and northwest winds, providing the opportunity “for bands of lake effect snow to develop for regions southeast of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay.”

According to TWN, Southern Ontario will get the most snow, and drivers should be careful of difficult conditions due to “blown snow and reduced visibility.”

Ontario’s weekend kicks off with heavy snow on Saturday, with the hardest hit areas in southern Ontario getting up to 6 inches of snow and the other regions of eastern Ontario 5 to 10 inches.

The weather in Southern Ontario will cool down on Sunday with possible light snowfall of 2 to 8 inches, TWN said.

Obituary: Marilyn May McDonald




Obituary: Marilyn May McDonald

Marilyn May McDonald was promoted to her eternal home in heaven on November 15, 2021 at the age of 85, after a short illness. Marilyn was born to Stewart and Inez Crandall on February 15, 1936, in South Pasadena, California. Marilyn grew up with her brothers Roland, Rodney and Duane and went to school in ‘South Pas’.

In 1952 Marilyn met the love of her life, “Mac” McDonald; they were married for only 6 months until the day of their meeting. They were constant companions and incredibly happy together for 64 years.

In 1964 they moved to Leona Valley, CA where they had the adventure of a lifetime. They built “McDonald’s Farm” on a few acres where they planted a cherry orchard and raised every farm animal you can imagine. Marilyn was especially happy with chickens and liked to ride her horse Reka.

On paperwork, Marilyn was a housewife; an endearing term that fails to describe her array of passions and skills. She worked outdoors, weeding and watering the orchard and garden, preserving various fruits, vegetables, and meats. Marilyn sewed clothes, volunteered at her children’s schools, and served faithfully at her local church.

A celebration of her life will be held on December 11, 2021 at 2:00 PM at Crossroads Memorial Church, 1700 Marketplace Dr, Great Falls, Montana.

Storm Barra: Yellow weather warning for ‘heavy snow’ and wind in Scotland




Storm Barra: Yellow weather warning for 'heavy snow' and wind in Scotland

LARGE parts of mainland Scotland have received another yellow weather warning for ‘heavy snow’ and high winds.

Just as the north of Scotland begins to recover from Storm Arwen that has left thousands of homes without power, another yellow wind warning has been issued on the country’s east coast.

Possible winds of up to 70mph could ravage the coast of Scotland, putting another chance of ‘a short-term loss of power and other services’.

A separate yellow warning has also been issued for a large part of the mainland of the country.

Up to 10cm of snow is expected in local areas in the Scottish Highlands, as well as the strong south east, which can lead to poor road visibility.

Both warnings are in effect from 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM Tuesday morning and will last all day and evening until midnight.

There is a possibility of travel delays on roads with some vehicles and passengers stranded, and the impending extreme weather has prompted Traffic Scotland to issue a warning to those planning to drive on Tuesday.

A statement from the Met Office said: “A streak of rain will turn to snow in northern England and Scotland through Tuesday.

“It is expected that 2-5cm will accumulate quite broadly throughout the area, but can reach 10cm locally, especially in parts of the Southern Highlands and Highlands.

“Strong southeast winds will also cause snow to drift in some places, particularly on the highest routes, contributing to poor visibility.

“Wind gusts of 45-50 mph are widely expected, with 60-70 mph at exposed coastal sites. The strongest winds will ease inland during the nighttime period.”

The areas affected for the yellow snow and wind warning are:

Central, Tayside & Fife




Perth and Kinross





SW Scotland, Lothian Borders

Dumfries and Galloway

Midlothian Council

Scottish Borders

West Lothian


Argyll and Bute

East Ayrshire

East Dunbartonshire

East Renfrewshire


North Lanarkshire


South Ayrshire

South Lanarkshire

West Dunbartonshire
