Weekend Weather for Dallas-Forth Worth

DISCLAIMER: #FakeWeather

If you don’t like the forecast, just keep reading the next one until you find one you like.

Forecast #1

The weekend weather forecast for the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is the worst ever reported in Dallas. The Dallas Morning News posted a photo of an orange “pitch black” night sky over downtown Dallas, where it said that visibility has been reduced to less than half light levels. The newspaper said that visibility is expected to be as bad as the worst recorded by NASA for September 19, 2012, when it recorded only a 1.2/4.9 inch over Dallas.

The Houston Chronicle published this image of a darkened sky over the city, with a lightening storm over the western part of the nation’s second-largest city. Houston’s mayor declared a “flash flood warning” in Dallas, but the storm has since moved east, leaving many residents still without safe shelter in some of the worst hit areas.
For many parts of the country, the storm is expected to produce severe thunderstorms and damaging hail.

The National Weather Service in Dallas reported heavy rain and damaging flash flooding in parts of the region from Houston to Texas City, and warned residents to “take precautions” should lightning strike.
The National Weather Service also issued a “flash flood warning” from Dallas to parts of Houston and Oklahoma City.
The Weather Channel reported that lightning strikes in Dallas and Oklahoma City caused a flash flood and damaging flash flooding as of Wednesday afternoon.

The Texas Governor’s Office reported that lightning strikes during the storm are forecast for the Dallas metro area. There is a strong chance of tornadoes, damaging wind gusts over 20 mph in parts of the Dallas area. Heavy rain and hail are possible across the Houston area. The Texas Emergency Management Agency is urging residents in Houston and Oklahoma City to leave their homes early, and to take “extraordinary measures” to protect their property if there is an increased risk of severe weather.

Forecast #2

The weekend weather forecast for the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is “badish”, with gusts up to 50 mph expected.  However, the wind will cool this week before dropping a bit next week.  This should mean that there is little chance of rain this week before the storm is over by late Sunday evening.  By Tuesday, the storm should be receding and the skies will be clear again, giving us the opportunity to warm up again before the next week of stormy weather arrives.  If this trend goes on over the next week, the rain will be more of a wash and there will be no major impacts to the metro’s infrastructure.

Forecast #3

The weekend weather forecast for the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is extremely hot.  The highs are well above normal.  The temperatures are likely to remain above freezing into tomorrow.  The low and thunderstorms are forecast to bring winds in excess of 100 mph.  Rain is predicted by early next week with a chance of scattered showers. The city’s temperature on Thursday was  37 degrees Celsius  and the average high was  44.7 degrees.  In addition to these high temperatures there are a lot of thunderstorms expected to occur on Saturday and Sunday.  It is anticipated that over 2 to 6 inches of rain will fall this weekend. It is anticipated that heavy snow is possible on Saturday, along with several scattered showers.  It is also possible the low in the metro area is likely to move in excess of 15 mm on Saturday.  Rain may continue into Monday with more rain possible.  If precipitation doesn’t arrive as planned, rain will occur on Saturday, Sunday, and perhaps possibly Monday.

Saturday’s Weather:

Winds:  -20 MPH (12-21 mph  at 12 pm )
Rising Sun  -10 C (6-8 C at 12 pm )
Sunshine:  -15 C (7.1-9 C at 12 pm )

The following days:

Saturday:  -Sunrise  12-12:45 pm
Sunday:  -Sunset 12-9:45 pm

It will be a cold, wet, wet week on the Dallas-Fort Worth area.  We are getting close to getting to where the average temperature on Friday was in the 35’s.  If you want to get out in the rain, you may want to dress warm for tomorrow’s rain and snow.  However, if you don’t want to go outside, I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t want to stay inside as well.

Forecast #4

The weekend weather forecast for the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is “wet and humid,” according to weather forecasts released by the National Weather Service. Temperatures will be above 50 degrees, and wind chills are expected to reach 30 and 40 degrees.

“The heavy rains will result in mudslides and power outages due to power outages,” the National Weather Service said in an email. “These outages will be most impactful on schools with heavy rains and potential flooding during and after football games.” There will be significant grid disruption when heavy rain starts, which may make traffic lights and other roadway facilities obsolete due to power outages. “High-end hotels are not operating,” the National Weather Service said.

“Due to heavy flooding and mudslides, traffic and access will be limited at major roads and transportation hubs throughout the metro area on Sunday night, as schools are closed during football games,” the weather service also said.

The Weather Underground has detailed the most severe storms to hit the United States and Canada.

The strongest storm to hit Texas on Sunday was expected to be a hurricane, the largest in recorded history.

“A low pressure ridge is pushing into northeast Texas with potential to reach Mexico on Sunday evening,” the Weather Underground’s Hurricane Center said. “The trough may weaken overnight, but the storm will continue to move inland and become an upper-level trough over the region. There will be a significant increase in the risk of coastal flooding due to the storm’s impact on land.”

In addition to Tropical Storm Harvey, the National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. The watch is in effect until midnight Monday.

“There is an increased chance that the area will get a sustained wind of up to 65 mph during the next 30-40 minutes. Winds could reach up to 80 mph during this time,” the weather service warned. “There may also see isolated hail and thunderstorm activity.” The watch for the Dallas area is in place until midnight Monday. The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the Austin metro area and the surrounding communities of Austin, Houston, and Dallas. The thunderstorms could reach the coast as a tropical storm early Monday morning and continue into early Tuesday.

“This is the fourth time in just over three years that a severe thunderstorm has caused flooding and damage, including in August 2013. The latest was during the Texas Flood Warning that was issued in mid-August 2014,” the weather service said.

The National Weather Service warned people to take precautions if driving in flooded areas.

“Roads are flooded and/or damaged with debris. Roadways, bridges, and other structures could be washed out and swept away,” the weather service said. “Motorists who are in flooded areas should not drive or drive on flood plains, unless instructed by a local police officer.”

The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the New York metropolitan area and surrounding areas.

Forecast #5

The weekend weather forecast for the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is incredibly promising.  Rain is expected in the afternoon and evening. There is also a strong chance of rain early Saturday morning and early Sunday morning.  The chances of showers are higher than the normal overnight temperatures in Dallas.  The chance of thunderstorms is higher than normal as well.  The chances of tornado activity is much higher than usual.  All of these conditions will create an amazing amount of fun and challenge for all.  If you wish to take your own pictures, don’t forget to bring flashlights.  In Texas, most flashlights are illegal.  We encourage you to bring your own but keep in mind a fair amount of parking is available.  In the interest of full disclosure, this blog is owned and operated by a business that provides services to those on the fringes of the photography community.

Posted by Photo Editor at 1:23 AM

I’ve posted this before but it really helps explain what happened.  This was the same day I wrote about this and how to take a picture in rain, but I wanted to add it again since I’m seeing lots of comments.  I wrote about how I had some issues taking a picture in the rain and how my camera had trouble shooting flash.  So what I did is I took some pictures of a car and the light turned off in the rear window.  I went outside and took a picture with the flash off but it didn’t work out for me.  I’m not sure if I was just having an issue taking a picture in the rain or if my shutter speed was too fast.  I took the photo and the shutter stopped working.  Then I started getting a little worried.  I was getting really tired and my legs were starting to hurt a little and I was starting to feel a little bit of a pain in my leg.  I went outside again and again, and again the flash didn’t work.  Then I went outside again and again and again, and again.

Chicago Sports Circus

DISCLAIMER: #FakeNews

Sources close to the matter are reporting that former mayor of New York City and personal lawyer to the president, Rudy Giuliani has been involved with the case. Sources say Giuliani did not respond to calls seeking comment. According to the New York Post, a representative for Giuliani was in Chicago on Sunday afternoon to attend a fundraising event for a campaign group that has been funding an effort to bring the animals to the U.S.

According to the newspaper, Chicago is the site of a massive circus where they are reportedly trained, bred, and housed in the circus yard. These “cattle dogs” are used as circus performers, who are used by the circus to entertain circus patrons. According to a Chicago Sun-Times report, circus performers have been trained daily by the Chicago Cubs, which makes them perfect circus fodder. A former Chicago Cubs employee tells the newspaper that “the Cubs have a long history in Chicago of using animal trainers and animal trainers to teach their animal fans.”

According to the Chicago Tribune, a petition is already circulating on the White House website calling on President Obama to rescue the animals.

In 2009, a number of bulls and pigs were taken off the Chicago Bulls stable in order to raise funds. In 2010, the Chicago Bulldog Show featured a bull named Big Boo. While these animals aren’t legally considered domestic animals, these animals are often used by some circus owners as an advertisement for their animals on television.

Despite these laws prohibiting “domestic” animals, Chicago Bulls players and owner Jerry Quarry frequently use these dogs as props in games and in media appearances. Bulls star Derrick Rose regularly uses two bulls as props.

Chicago’s City Council passed an ordinance in 2010 prohibiting “exotic animal use” in entertainment venues. In a statement, Chicago Police Department commissioner Eddie Johnson noted: “This ordinance prohibits animals which are used to entertain the public and which are otherwise owned by individuals or companies without a license from being exhibited at private events and places of employment. Animals such as bullhorns and exotic animals are not suitable for any such employment activities. The Department of Public Health will be working with the city’s Animal Care and Control Department to determine whether to expand its ordinance to include bullhound use in the city of Chicago.”

Special Weather Bulletin for Niagara Falls

The National Weather Service has issued the following special weather bulletin for the Niagara Falls area.

“This is a serious weather warning for the area. There has been major rainfall and winds of gusts of 60 mph with dangerous winds to be expected. The danger is still there, but we’ll be able to see through thick cloud that is now clearing and some of the fog that may be formed may get stronger as we approach. We’ve seen more tornados in the forecast so expect a significant number of tornados and a large number of flash flooding if it goes off.”

“With the snowpack at a significant low, we’re looking at a lot of freezing rain and maybe very heavy downpours. With the storm track moving over into Lake Ontario, we may have a chance at a snow day on Sunday.”

“We have a lot of moisture and cold water in the lake that could create some snow for the next couple of days.”

A number of warnings are in place for Lake Ontario.

There have been many calls by local residents.

“Don’t drive over or around lakes,” said Jim Dutton, with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.

“You can easily get hurt if you’re not careful. And if you’re going to cross the Lake Ontario, be sure to drive with the right side facing the road – if you’re going to drive over a creek, for God’s sake – don’t go under them.”

“Warm, windy weather could be coming down the lake with possible heavy rain,” he said. “But there are some other warnings that we would like you to think about.”

If a person sees a large white cloud or mist roll from shore, be aware that this is a weather warning and the risk is increasing.

The Niagara Fire Department is advising residents to avoid the area around the Port Colborne dam. There has been snow accumulation and there are some areas in the area with heavy snow.

“If it is very windy, you might want to be aware of what the weather is like, how much snow is going to fall, so when you’re going out to your car, keep your windows closed.

“Be sure to keep an eye on the ground in case of a possible flash flood, as it can cause serious property damage,” said the Fire Chief.

“If a thunderstorm does develop and it does get to Lake Ontario,” the Water Quality Management Council says, “it could result in a significant number of people being at risk of serious health problems if untreated.”

A number of warnings have been issued by local and federal agencies, including the National Weather Service, National Parks Service, Ministry of Natural Resources and Ontario Provincial Police.

The following are the weather conditions for the Niagara Falls area today.

Wind:

Windy conditions are expected today and could be severe. The heaviest rain is expected for the next few days. Winds will continue to blow in from the south.

Thunderstorm:

The thunderstorms could cause power outages and power outages could last for days, depending on the direction.

Three-day Forecast Calls for Vernal Equinox and Sunset

This weekend’s three-day forecast calls for vernal equinox at 9am this Saturday and then the moon’s full phase ending around 3pm on Sunday, bringing some bright light for the next two and a half days before the sun sets.

For the last four decades, this time of year has been one of astronomical interest in Hawaii, with the lunar eclipse in June a popular tourist destination.

But the eclipse is expected to bring little rainfall because a storm system is approaching the island, potentially bringing torrential down puddles and rain and melting ice caps. The Pacific Ocean is not the most likely source for this water.

If you plan on spending some time in the mountains, there are no public access roads that cross the mountain range on this side of the valley, so it’s best to drive off your bike to avoid water.

There is also a short drive to the north in the town of Waikiki.

The next eclipse is Sunday night, July 17. The first was July 4, 2012, when the moon covered parts of the eastern U.S. and was seen with some detail in parts of North America.

The last eclipse happened Jan. 4, 1879. It was visible from a number of sites around the world.

Chtulhu Widening Lead In 2020 Presidential Election

Polling data is showing Cthulhu with a clear lead over the other candidates, leading to accusations of voter tampering. Still, Cthulhu is a highly polarizing candidate, with polling showing a cult-like approval and existential dread as the most common sentiment reported by those polled with very little in between the two. Some election officials are starting to question Cthulhu’s campaign promise to “get inside the mind of voters” in light of this new polling data.

One poll suggested the Democratic candidate might not have been too far off the mark, at least in part. (And we may want to think twice about our own perceptions of Lovecraft.) (Note to readers: This article contains spoilers.)

What’s the point of polling if it has nothing to do with the election results? It could indicate whether or not Cthulhu is gaining ground among Republicans, or whether the Democratic candidate might actually be getting more votes than she had hoped. If she wins the election on Nov. 8, what will the pollsters say, and how will this affect the way we vote?

Polling is a part of this election season, so let’s give the data some credit. The polling numbers are showing Cthulhu with a real-world lead, in large part because most people who voted in the primary didn’t know she was running as a Republican and had no idea of her affiliation. There was much ado in the election over whether Clinton’s lead would be bigger than the Obama one in the general, and many Republicans and independents had already given up on the party to run as a candidate. But polls show some evidence that she actually did just that.

What this data says is that there is something really resonant about Lovecraft’s ideas, and in particular how those themes run counter to the idea that the United States has always been ruled by white men. For instance, when we read Lovecraft’s tales as a child, there were a lot darker themes to consider than what we might think today.

Cthulhu

It’s been suggested that the Cthulhu Mythos has a direct influence on the way people feel about politics. We’ve seen that some Republican primary voters have begun to reject the idea of Donald Trump as a Republican nominee, as well as those who are not voting Democrat in the primary. Some have even argued that Cthulhu could have helped to keep Trump out of office, which would be a pretty interesting story for Lovecraft to tell.

Cthulhu is certainly resonating with some voters, and it’s encouraging to know that some of those in the polling are actually listening. But there are still questions. Why Cthulhu? Is there some deep connection between Cthulhu — his Cthulhu Mythos — and what we feel about the world of politics and power that the United States has come to inhabit since the days of our founding? Or is Cthulhu just a weird fantasy created by a guy who writes his stories in the margins of an obscure, weirdly influential book he’s never read?

Girls at School Are Tough

DISCLAIMER: #FakeNews

When she was in high school, she was called a “tough cookie,” but girls are still getting pushed around, she and other women say. Women are expected to excel academically and in sports and to have a certain “character” that is valuable to their families, she says.

But for most college students, she adds, it’s simply the right thing to do to make up for the absence of female teachers, teachers who have to be physically bigger and stronger than males and teachers who can only teach in a specific discipline because there are no other schools to do it, said Katie Wasserstrom, an associate professor of education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who studies how women have progressed in the educational system. “In terms of our role in society, women have long been underrepresented, especially in certain occupations. And that’s why it took women so long to gain equal employment opportunities.”

Wasserstrom is one of many scientists who are examining how different educational groups have fared in getting a fair shake in recent decades. She points to women in STEM fields having an even stronger showing than male counterparts; she cites the study of female students who entered Harvard Business School and the Harvard Graduate School of Economics, who were twice as likely as men to earn a doctorate and five times as likely to have a job in finance.

While some studies have focused on gender differences across all education levels, others point at the impact of education, such as women with less schooling, women whose parents attended schools less likely to have the same level of education and women whose parents are more educated.

Some of those differences can be seen even in the very fields where women are making a difference in education — in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. A 2012 study by the National Science Foundation found women are four times as likely as men to earn a bachelor’s degree from four of America’s top science universities.

The gap between male and female performance on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) has gotten worse over the past 20 years, Wasserstrom and other researchers said. In math, women are now twice as likely as men to finish college, she found in her 2014 research. But men still make up a majority of those who earn doctorates but also earn less than a college degree. In the STEM fields, women are about three times as likely as men to earn a bachelor’s degree, said Wasserstrom. That gender gap is even larger in math but has shrunk since the 1990s.

But it’s not all about gender. Wasserstrom’s 2014 report found that in science, women have an edge at math and science, with a 1.7-to-1 advantage in math. In other areas of the educational system, such as math and science, women have a slight edge. In math, women are nearly twice as likely as men to earn a master’s degree. In science and technology, women are about twice as likely as men to earn a doctorate. In the humanities and social sciences, men outnumber women, Wasserstrom wrote.

The math, science and social sciences fields also are home to a large and diverse group of high achieving women. There are a number of reasons for this, including higher salaries, more women in high school and college than men in the United States, and women taking less time out of college.

But for decades, women have struggled to advance to positions similar to those held by men. In the 1990s, the women who graduated with the greatest math or science, math or science-related jobs at universities with more male students were all women. But today, there aren’t that many qualified women, and a large percentage of men earn such positions, according to an analysis published this month by the Pew Research Center. And it looks as though women are catching up, says Wasserstrom, who is writing a book on career paths in science and technology.

The research in Wasserstrom’s research found that among high school students and high school dropouts, gender difference in college enrollment was most significant. Women make up nearly 70 percent of college students and nearly 30 percent of college dropouts in math and science, and about 80 percent in the humanities and social sciences. But women still lag behind men, at least overall.

“One of the reasons women haven’t really gotten the kind of college that they want is that the field that’s needed for the job is not there yet,” Wasserstrom said. But there is hope, she added. “One thing we know is that we can make progress in these fields…. In the fields where there might be gaps, the girls could be the ones who will get them.”

This story was updated Aug. 25 to include the names of the institutions examined in the Pew Research Center analysis.

How Women Are Succeeding In High School And Beyond

In the news this evening, the New York Times (New York Times) has announced that it would launch a global digital campaign to encourage women to stay in school. The campaign, dubbed One More Chance, will be launched in a series of video campaigns and feature the work of local organizations and educational institutions across the United States. The goal, says New York Times Publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr., is to “bring the voices of women who would like to stay in school together” to an audience of over 100 million people in the U.S. and around the world. The goal of the campaign is simple, he says: “To give our country a voice in this debate about how hard it is for women to succeed.” In addition to highlighting the success of some of the women featured in the Times stories, Sulzberger and the Times will publish a series of stories that show how women are succeeding in high school and beyond: “I’ve Never Been To The School I Want to Be in My Life” (Sept. 10, 2016), “I Am A Woman in School (But I Think I Don’t Need To Be)” (Sept. 17, 2016) and “Girls at School Are Tough” (Oct. 9, 2016).

I Am A Woman in School (But I Think I Don’t Need To Be)

“I Am A Woman in School (But I Think I Don’t Need To Be)” is a song that features lyrics such as “I’m a girl who’s just a baby/And I’m a girl that’s been born/I was born to be a girl” and “My dream is to grow up, but I think I don’t need to be/ And I’m a boy that never should have been.” The lyric was written in a recent New York Times op-ed by the singer/songwriter Katy Perry, who was asked what the song means to her. Her response was that she hopes the title refers to the idea that, although women might come of age during adolescence, they won’t necessarily grow up. “It feels like we were conceived as girls and then they gave us this amazing experience of being human,” she wrote. “I think that’s how I wish this song was to my sister’s generation of young girls: I just want her to have that feeling.” Her sister, Rihanna, tweeted a video of Perry singing the song back on Oct. 13. “To the girl who’s just a baby, I’m so proud.”

The song was named for a character named Lady Bumba in the novel, “Lady Bumba and the Bunch of Babies.” Lady Bumba is referred to in the book as “an ugly duckling who has a very particular way,” while the Bunch of Babies describe her as “a tall, skinny, pretty little duck.” Lady Bumba and the Bunch of Babies are both referenced in the book “Sisters and Sisters,” an autobiographical account of two sisters: “And a lady named Bumba, and a pretty girl called the Bunch of Babies.” The lyrics of the song, “I’m A Woman in School, But I Think I Don’t Need To Be” in its current iteration, refer to the idea of growing up with the assumption that one does not need to grow up and is therefore free to express herself. Lady Bumba and the Bunch of Babies also reference another character in Lady Bumba: a mother who has “a particular way,” who “will not shut you out.”

I’ve Never Been To The School I Want to Be in My Life

“I’ve Never Been To The School I Want To Be In My Life”

I have a very special daughter who will one day make a difference at a young age. Her name is Bella; she will be 18 in December this year. It’s only been a year since she was born, so she’s still learning about life in school. In high school, she was in a group that included all of her brothers, and she was very quiet. It wasn’t until she came to visit me when I was in the middle of a family tragedy that I realized we had a daughter. Bella was in school that year, but her school had decided not to invite her back.

“What does that mean to you? Is it that this is what I want to spend my life doing?” I was trying to think of something to say in response to Bella, and I couldn’t figure out a way to do it in a way that was positive. As soon as the decision was made and Bella was not invited back as a student, it was like a huge weight had been lifted off of me. I didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything. There was no way I could think about her in that way, and that sense of accomplishment didn’t leave me. The school that Bella attends now is in a very privileged position to have a unique, special girl in this situation.

The school was able to do a wonderful job with a decision that allowed Bella to pursue more interesting studies. That decision has given them a huge boost in understanding what they are doing and how to do everything within their power to give the best possible experience to students from every socioeconomic background. And they don’t have to feel like they’re just doing their best to do it. They have all kinds of resources at their disposal, and Bella could not be happier. Bella also has a lot to be proud of, because she has become the most successful girl in her class in history. This is a school that believes in the importance of education not just for a young person’s academic performance but for her future career.

Bella’s journey as a student in high school was inspiring, but also tragic. She was a quiet girl, with a quiet voice. But she never let that deter her. She was a very talented musician who could sing beautifully. When I think of her, I think of my own struggles, too. When I was in school, we were taught we needed to be good at reading and writing, and Bella was not the person I thought she would be. I knew that when she left home, I would be missing a wonderful opportunity to be the best person I could be.

In high school, Bella made a big impact on the school and in the community, and she will always be a part of this school. She has inspired so many people, and she has become a very good student. Her success and success as a young woman are both amazing and inspiring. She has a lot of things to learn, but she is doing a lot of the right things at the right time, and I hope she has the opportunity to do so.

The school has made the right choice and has embraced Bella like everyone else did with my daughter. It has also recognized Bella’s incredible story, and they have helped her realize that it’s not the life she wants to lead, but that’s okay — this life has been given to her, and it’s her time to really embrace what’s possible and find her passion in everything that happens. They did so well that she is able to spend the rest of her high school career in America, at home with her family and working towards a goal she hopes of achieving before she reaches age 26: becoming a physician. Bella will be able to learn to perform on an international stage, which is something she truly craves, and she is also determined to pursue her passion for performing in New Zealand for years to come.

I want to thank the school, the staff, her parents, school administrators, her parents, the principal and everyone else involved for being so kind and accommodating during this difficult time. Bella, thank you so much for all that you have taught me in your short existence as this girl who never had a voice.

I’m proud to be the mom of a future First Lady who will bring new meaning to this beautiful word: “caring”

Toronto Weather “Not Going To Kill Us”

DISCLAIMER: #FakeWeather

“Tomorrow’s forecast is good,” said Mr. Chahal, who lives in a suburb west of Toronto. “The cold is not going to kill us, and we are just going to have to be very patient.”

This time, the sun will show its face on Sunday, with temperatures expected to reach the 30s, the National Weather Service in Montreal wrote early Monday morning.

But on Tuesday, the sun is expected to fade, leaving Toronto at a crossroad. There is the possibility of snow, especially in areas where the high temperatures in winter are often more severe — such as the eastern part of the city or the GTA. In other parts of eastern Ontario, there will be a high risk of frost as well.

In Toronto, roads will be impassable and pedestrians and cyclists will be stuck to narrow, narrow lanes, even on Sunday, and Monday will see no rain and no street clearing. The city will be without electrical power for three weeks, and will be without a power line for four weeks. The city will rely on the power grid, which will be down for another two weeks. The city also has a long snowfall forecast: up to five inches, and snowstorms of up to one inch.

The forecast is not good for the entire day, since the temperature could dip to near zero during those three weeks.

“We’re going to be very, very lucky to be in that position,” Mr. Chahal said.

The Toronto Star contributed to this report and is the producer of the video above.
