The snow is weird. It’s now 0 degrees C and the snow isn’t melting. It’s subliming. It’s not unusual for snow to sublime (evaporate) but it usually does it when it’s sunny and it doesn’t smell like plasticky gasoline when it does. 5 mins outside and I’m super dizzy and nauseous.
Sublimation means when a solid like snow turns into a gas without going through a liquid state. So is this snow off-gassing? Sure smells like it. Even my partner had to go lie down.
I left a jar out to collect a sample the other day but I just put the lid on. If this has vinyl chloride in it, can I assume it won’t leak out of a mason gar? @CuzzinSnooter thoughts?

Considering oxidation reactions are exothermic, and there’s HCl in the air from Ohio, is anyone asking about the photocycle of HCl in the presence of Ni+? I wonder how much Nickel is in the atmosphere from all the electric vehicle production in Ontario #ONStorm #ScienceIsCool

Dear Westjetters, I join you in the frustration of being sidelined by @WestJet led by the failed leadership of @AHoensbroech and will proactively use my cancelled time not to grieve missing Christmas, but to analyze data on their failures to deliver while other airlines could. 🧵
2/ Today is a good day to analyze incoming data about flights because @WestJet "proactively cancelled" them due to #ONStorm.…
3/ I'm more convinced it was because of resource management failure & I'll track flights coming out of #YYC (their hub) to these destinations to see it in comparison to other airlines like @AirCanada @FlairAirlines @Lynx_Air and @SunwingVacay. Something you should do too @CTA_gc

Ontario, Canada's most populated province, was just hit with their worst snowstorm in years.

It led to school closures, traffic jams, and police warning people to stay home.

It also led to the most amazing acts of kindness you’ll ever see.

A Canadian Thread.

When this woman found her car buried underneath a massive pile of snow, how did she remove it?

With a curling broom.

Name something more Canadian, we’ll wait…

(🎥: IG/deee.t_____)
This is Clayton.

He’s 8.

During the blizzard, he noticed a man who had fallen into the snow, and was nearly buried underneath all of it.

He immediately alerted his parents who called 911 and saved the man’s life.

Ontario students are supposed to be back in school today, but Mother Nature had different plans.

As schools close, social media lights up with kids (and dogs) playing in the snow.

#ONStorm #ONwx 11:10PM - Sun, Jan 16, 2022:

The snow has started to make its way into our region late this evening. We are also seeing this very sharp gradient setting up on the northwestern edge of the system.
This is why we had so much uncertainty with the expected accumulation in this area. You can see that London is currently under a very intense band of snow but just a few kilometers to the northwest and there’s barely a flake.
At this point, it looks like our forecast is lining up fairly good based on the current radar. The snow has started a little earlier than expected but that shouldn’t affect the actual totals.

#ONStorm #ONwx After reviewing the latest high-resolution data this evening, we're becoming quite concerned about the GTA around Lake Ontario into Eastern Ontario.

Models are showing intense snowfall rates of 5-10cm PER HOUR (yes, that's in one hour).
Combined with wind gusts approaching 50-80km/h will lead to potentially dangerous blizzard conditions along the Lake Ontario shoreline and parts of Eastern Ontario. The worst conditions will start around 3 am and continue until noon.
If possible, you should avoid any non-essential travel through the affected area until at least the late afternoon. Highway and road closures are likely even for some major highways in the GTA, Niagara region and Eastern Ontario.

There is no snow!🚫❄️

#ONStorm #ONwx UPDATE: Monday’s Snowstorm Shifts Further West Bringing the Threat of 20+cm of Snow Into the GTA and Central Ontario; Up to 50cm of Snow Possible for Niagara and Eastern Ontario

Read here:…
Once again, we ask you to please *read* the entire forecast as many of your questions and concerns will be answered there. This is a very complex system and just reading the headline or looking at the map won't be that helpful.
We included lots of details about what could happen along with a detailed timeline graphic for each region. Taking that 5-10 minutes to read the forecast is a worthwhile investment to ensure you're properly informed.

#ONStorm #ONwx You may have seen a 'storm chip' forecast circulating on social media for the Maritimes.

We've had many requests from the community to bring the storm chip forecast to Ontario. So we've done just that... introducing our first 'Storm Chips & Hot Cocoa' forecast!
Clearly, this isn't meant to be a scientific forecast by any means. Storm chips tend to be more of an Atlantic Canada tradition, however, it appears to be catching on here. We figured why not put out something a little more light-hearted to ease the stress of this snowstorm.
We aim to be a family-friendly page so we used a drink that everyone of all different ages (including children) can legally enjoy. But for those who need something a little stronger to get through this, feel free to convert it to your preferred adult drink. ;)

#ONStorm #ONwx Gooood morning everyone!

We’ve been continuously going over the latest data for the significant snowstorm affecting Southern Ontario late tonight into Monday.
The models continue to trend with a slightly more western track which means higher snowfall totals are possible. Those in our ‘uncertain’ zone will likely see more snow than shown on our map from last night (included in the tweet).
As we mentioned, this area has a very tight gradient between no snow and very heavy snow so changes are expected.

We’re looking at bumping the Hamilton, Toronto and Kawartha Lakes region up to the 25-40cm range on our map.

#ONStorm #ONwx Potentially Strongest Snowstorm in Years To Bring Up to 20-40cm of Snow to Parts of Southern Ontario Starting Sunday Night; Localized Blizzard Conditions Possible Monday Morning

Full detailed forecast:…
It's very important to *read* the entire forecast instead of just focusing on the map. There are a lot of variables with this system in particular which makes it very difficult to forecast.
Our goal remains to keep you informed on all the potential outcomes which can't be shown in one single map. We have also included our detailed timeline graphics to help you know when to expect the worst conditions.

#ONStorm #ONwx Wow... the model data this evening is quite something if you were hoping for a good snowstorm across Southern Ontario on Monday.

All of the major models (NAM, GEM (Canadian) and GFS) have a notable westward trend in the track of the system.
Still waiting on the European model but it had this same western trend in earlier runs so we expect it will agree.

What does this mean for us? Well, confidence is growing for a very impactful snowstorm across Eastern Ontario and around the Golden Horseshoe...
with widespread totals between 20-40cm. Depending on if the more westerly track continues, we may have to start talking about bringing areas as far west as London, Barrie and Muskoka into the significant snowfall accumulation. However, there's lots of time for this to change.

#ONStorm #ONwx EARLY PREVIEW: Snowstorm Could Bring 15-25+cm of Snow to Eastern Parts of Southern Ontario on Monday

Details:… Image
We believe it’s important to post a forecast this early due to the potentially significant impacts it could have on our region. This is now your chance to plan for a snowstorm and make any alternative arrangements for Monday should it occur.
We can’t emphasize enough that this forecast will likely change. The best that can be done is to prepare for the worst and hope for the best, we don’t want you to be unprepared! There’s no harm in being over-prepared.
