A trip that takes us through Canada! And oh, will it snow. It’s a 2 day trip that covers 776 miles, many of them Canadian. I hope the whole “kilometers” thing doesn’t throw me. Or even the “kilometres”. Our pace will be at a very slow 52.9mph, meaning we are assured only 423 miles, and probably a night in Ontario.
We are going to be chasing some snow through the entire day on Saturday. The best chances for some flurries will be east of Ann Arbor into Detroit. By the time we exit the Windsor Tunnel in Canada, we can expect more overcast. There will certainly be flurries on the back edge of this low, but nothing that will really slow down traffic through the wide expanse of Canada. If we encounter any issues in Toronto, it won’t have anything to do with the weather. We can expect to spend New Years Eve in Bowmanville, Ontario. I understand their celebration has to be seen to be believed.
There is but another wave moving through the Northern Plains, preparing to engage the Great Lakes. We will be forced to deal with some snow showers in our rearview for most of the day. Don’t be surprised if the snow, likely mixed with rain, really picks up when we make a southerly turn in Vermont on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain. A little lake effect, a little bluster associated with the advancing front, and this last half hour-hour in the car will be the nastiest of the trip, I suspect. Even then, it won’t be so bad, if you can handle driving on wet roads.
