Amazing thing today: it snowed! Here in Juneau, Alaska, we're in what are typically the brightest, driest months of the year, from mid-April to the end of June.

Well, things were going on normally the last several weeks. In the sun it was warm, temps in the upper 40s/low 50s, bushes are budding, crocuses are up and blooming, day lilies stand 6 inches high.

And then today, it snowed.

If the forecast here is to be believed, that storm will spare southern New England, but we will see. When it gets warm enough here for things to thaw, we won't need rain: it may flood anyhow.

Round number 3? Mum's gonna freak out. Last week, the power was out from 2AM to 8:30AM and she was "having flashbacks" from late January (out for 4 days). Then it was out from 11AM to 1PM and she was really getting antsy.

4:35 AM ADT Sunday 19 March 2017
Special weather statement in effect for:

Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick
A low pressure system will approach slowly from the south tonight and Monday then linger around the region into Tuesday. Precipitation from this system will begin over southernmost portions of New Brunswick early Monday morning as a mixture of light snow, ice pellets and freezing rain but should change to rain later in the morning as temperatures climb slightly above the freezing mark. However, as temperatures fall later in the day and the precipitation continues to push northward, there is potential for a prolonged area of freezing rain to form Monday evening and persist into Tuesday morning. At this time northern and eastern portions of the province are most at risk for freezing rain, but there is still a chance it could affect western and southern portions of the province as well.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts as freezing rain warnings may be required.

yes, but only in low latitudes - Aurora Australis I'll never see it here in Sydney. Maybe if I ever get to Cygnet Folk Festival in Tasmania I can see one, but as that festival is in January & summer makes if hard to see them, probably not.

Auroras: What are they and how do you spot one in Australia? - this article says Auroras have been seen in Kiama, a 2.5 hour train trip south where I have friends, I must ask them if they have ever seen the aurura.

Do Heavenly Dancers (Northern Lights) count as weather?
We've had some amazing displays over the past few weeks- - and now there's a service that predicts when and where to view them! (usually in the middle of the night -- -)
In the garden snowdrops, hazel catkins and apple blossom have been out for ages, daffodils coming into bloom now along with various early rhododendrons.
As ever the sun/clouds/rain/wind/temperature vary not only from day to day but often from one extreme to another within the day - or between by home and the city 30 miles away!
So everyone has to wear layers and carry a backpack in order to add to the layers being worn - or stow away the ones needing to be removed!
As they say - several seasons in one day in Scotland.
Ah well, at least we never have to worry about water shortages, and always have lush green vegetation to enjoy!

Yes, Eliza, I knew a classmate from southern California who had never seen snow until she entered university in the northeastern US, and she too found it thrilling. I grew up near Lake Erie -- not so cold as Lake Superior, but more than enough lake-effect snow.

Today, far from Lake Erie, the wind has died down while the snow just keeps on falling; the blizzard-speed wind is due to return within the next twenty-four hours, and heavier snowfall with it. Can't we catch a breather here?!

Ah Sandra, when my husband first arrived from W Africa, he'd never seen snow, or experienced temperatures below about 28 degrees C. He was absolutely enchanted and rushed outside (I managed to get him into boots, a puffa jacket and a scarf, plus woolly hat) He started to build things with the snow, and I showed him how to roll a giant ball to make a snowman. He foolishly took his gloves off, and in a few minutes said, "Aiiiieee!! This snow is burning my fingers! And also my toes!" His poor hands and feet were almost frostbitten! He still adores snow (I certainly don't) There's an advert on TV at the moment about a toy meerkat and a 'snow dream' where he's invited to build a 'snowkat'. I always get a bit choked up as it reminds me of those early days.

I couldn't take that kind of HOT!

Some forecasts paint a worse scenario but here is the Environment Canada forecast...

Blizzard warning in effect for:

Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick
Blizzard conditions with gusty winds and persistent visibility near zero in snow and blowing snow are expected or occurring.

A low pressure system is expected to develop south of Cape Cod this evening and intensify as it moves towards Nova Scotia tonight. Snow will begin over southwestern New Brunswick this evening and spread eastward throughout the night.

As the storm passes south of Nova Scotia on Monday, it will intensify and give heavy snow, very strong northeasterly winds, and blowing snow resulting in blizzard conditions to much of the southern half of New Brunswick.

Snowfall amounts between 25 and 55 cm is expected with winds gusting up to 100 km/h. The highest snowfall amounts and strongest winds are forecast to be along the Fundy coast.

The snow will taper to flurries Monday evening and the winds will gradually diminish Monday night as the low continues to move east.

Travel is expected to be extremely hazardous due to widespread poor visibility. Travel is not recommended.

Blizzard warnings are issued when widespread reduced visibilities of 400 metres or less are expected for at least 4 hours.

Here we are expecting more snow starting Sunday morning and ending Monday night. I'm just inside the bad zone for this storm which will be milder for those living in southern Rhode Island. We had a blizzard on Thursday. For that storm too I lived just inside the bad zone which was milder for those living in northern RI. This is what happens to those of us living in the middle of the state! The weather reports kept giving us a blizzard warning as the snow fell and the winds blew. Finally in the mid-afternoon it was declared a blizzard. The plows came through in the late evening and I wasn't able to get outside in time to move my car to avoid being plowed in. Thank goodness for a neighbor who did most of the work shoveling my car out. I owe his family a gift certificate to a nice local restaurant.

Bureau of Meteorology heatwave assessment

I'm on the edge of Sydney's CBD close to the harbour (tho I can't see it) but it's effect means we are cooler than out in suburbia & in most of the state. Temperature at 4.30pm Sat is 35.4C here, with 44 to 46 in the west. (38 is 100F)

Everyone has been told to conserve electricity - eg. turn off & unplug unnecessary items. One of our largest energy companies shut down a smelter for a couple of hours yesterday as it uses 10% of the state's electricity & is doing so again this afternoon.

and tomorrow is expected to be 29! yah, cool weather (not) & about 10 degrees warmer in the Western suburbs.
