Heavy flurries and low visibility this morning.
A band of lake effect snow has developed off of Georgian Bay during the night. Flurries at times heavy will affect regions southeast of the bay this morning. Accumulations of up to 5 cm are possible, along with brief low visibilities. Conditions will improve later this morning.
We've just created a new division of OTW called "Junior Forecasters: The Farm Team".
We've noticed there is a few young, talented and enthusiastic future weather forecasters out there.
We want OTW to carry on well into the future after our current admins retire and therefore, we're scouting talent just like a hockey team.
Congratulations to our newest recruits:
Aidan Stevens & Brennen Perry!
Aidan (14) has a long, impressive history of forecasting and extensive knowledge of models and weather software/apps.
Brennen (15) has already proven his worth by spotting the rotating storm over Georgian Bay last year, an hour before it was Tornado Warned by Environment Canada. He's also spotted many rotating storms in Muskoka, etc.
And in those tricky forecasting situations, we may even share their forecasts to see who's right between OTW and the farm team. :D
This farm team is invite only but if you know someone who may be interested, please private message us.
