Winter Storm

Oakville/Burlington, Ontario - Nov. 22, 2007

The first real winter storm of the season.

The winter storm system that rolled through Southern Ontario on Nov 22nd was initially forecast to be accompanied by up to 20 cm of snow but the colder temperatures stayed further north. We did end up with a mixed bag of precipitation including: rain, freezing rain, ice pellets, and snow. With the winds coming out of the east at daybreak, it was clear that the wave action on Lake Ontario was going to be significant, and it was. Large waves crashed ashore in Oakville, Burlington and Hamilton. They eventually died down once the winds shifted direction but put on quite a spectacle while they lasted.
