Multiple provinces could see snow ahead of the Victoria Day long weekend


Up to six provinces could see moisture in the way of snow by week’s end according to the latest weather tracking systems evaluated by meteorologists on May 16.

This current system is likely to affect Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec with the greatest chance for measurable snow in northwestern Ontario on Friday.

Meteorologists have not yet disclosed just how much snow is possible as they say the outcome of the storm in Canada will largely be determined by the origin of it.

“If the system forms in Colorado, this would mean more Gulf warmth and less Arctic air, but if it forms over Wyoming or Montana, cold air will be a bigger player and could result in more snowfall.”

As always, there is a disclaimer and room for margin of error as experts state “long-range models have their biases and warmer air may become more prominent as the week progresses, which could result in only a couple heavily populated areas seeing snowfall”.
