Many Canadians will see a bit of snow this weekend
Saturday, November 9, 2013, 2:51 PM -
It's that kind of weekend - almost every Canadian province is seeing some kind of snow event, expecting one, or cleaning up after one.
For the most part, though, amounts have been small, although people in southwestern Ontario, which saw some snowfall over the last couple of days, wouldn't be too happy about it.
For Ontario, the big snow story is happening in the north, where a wide band from Manitoba's interlake region, pushing deep into Northern Ontario, could see between 5 and 10 cm of snow.
The area around Timmins and Kapuskasing could see as much as 15 cm fall by the time all is said and done.
No snowfall warnings or special weather statements were in place for either province by Saturday morning, and that system is expected to move east through northern Ontario and Quebec into Sunday.
In its path are the Maritime Provinces, with parts of the New Brunswick interior on track for up to 8 cm of snow, along with sea-effect snow in parts of coastal Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, tapering off by Sunday morning, although it may linger into Sunday evening in Cape Breton.
More en route for the west
The system affecting northwestern Ontario Sunday began out west, where parts of Alberta and B.C.'s higher elevations saw some snow, although nothing like the snowstorms of the last two weekends.
Westerners should keep their eye on the horizon, though. Another system is poised to bring rain to Vancouver Island and the lower mainland on Sunday, with more snow for the Interior, up to 10 cm in the higher elevations.
