The 2013 Weather GDT
 
Here we go again folks, our favorite time of year: WINTER. It began on Monday, but it really starts tomorrow:

Winter Storm WarningIssued at 3:24 PM MST Wednesday 16 November 2011

Summary
Snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 centimetres and blowing snow expected for Thursday. This is a warning that dangerous winter weather conditions are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions...Listen for updated statements.

Details
An intense low pressure system is expected to develop in Southern Alberta east of Red Deer by Thursday morning. On the northern edge of this system a band of heavy snow will form extending from Grande Cache through the city of Edmonton and surrounding regions to the Lloydminster region. 10 to 15 centimetres of snow is expected by Thursday evening along this band. In addition the system will also generate strong easterly winds. The strong winds combined with falling snow will reduce visibility due to blowing snow.

Don't be scared of snow.

The only thing I hate about the weather is all the stupid drivers that come out.

If you don't want to go faster get the **** in the right lane.

Impatient driver much? I hate when people have to weave through traffic just to gain a couple car lengths. Patience is key, my friend.

There is a difference between being impatient and having someone drive 45 in a 70 zone in the left lane.

Not my fault people are too stupid to get their winter tires on early.

I'm not scared of snow. But it took me 2 hours to get home from work on Monday when it usually takes 20 minutes. I'm trying to figure out how early I will have to leave to get to the arena on time.

For the game tomorrow, 2hrs early would be a good choice, that's what I plan to do.

I am heading to tenerife for 10 days--So I am hoping for good weather while there

People driving near or above the speed limit cause a lot more accidents than those driving 20 under when it's snowing. There is a reason they say drive for the conditions not the speed limit.

Driving Scared and Driving off the traffic flow causes accidents, generally being inattentive.

If you're scare or nervous because of Snow, DON'T drive.

People need to stop treating falling "snow" like it's falling Teflon or fire, or Teflon on fire.

I'm talking about conditions like Tuesday. Where roads were legitimately bad. Trust me, for the most part the people speeding caused the accidents, not those driving slower.

T-Funk 11-16-2011 10:22 PM

I look forward to driving home up highway 2 tomorrow at 4pm then :)

Kevotron 11-16-2011 10:28 PM

I think in less than normal weather conditions is ok to be cautious and be 5-10 km under the speed limit, but when ppl are over cautious/scared and drive 20+ km slower it causes traffic to be at a stand still.

This past Tuesday? I drove the Roads ALOT, from 50th street, south of the Yellowead, to Westlock and back, and yeah, not a big deal. I take HWY 28 in, again, no problem at all.

Except for an ***hole in Cube Truck, who decided he wasn't turning at the right spot and pulled in front of me.

You should have seen Wye, 21 and 14.

LRT is always a good plan for bad weather. Saves a lot of hassle to be able to park well away and train it in and back.

Really? When its glare ice you think you should be driving 110 on Highway 16?

Going 80-90 is what you should be doing.

Certainly, that is one of the worst things you can do. I'm talking about when its snowing onto ice. I wasn't clear enough earlier. Normal snow is fine. People are way too scared of it. However, when the conditions call for you you should drive a bit slower.

Insta 11-17-2011 10:55 AM

I took 21 on monday after work and between Fort Sask and the Henday it didn't get above 50km/h nor should it have, what a nightmare. I can only hope today won't be as bad, but it looks like it will be.
