Happy Snow Day ⛄️
No doubt you’ve already heard, but we’re set up for an interesting storm this weekend! Exact temperatures and perception amounts are still tbd as there are multiple factors contributing to this unusual January system. For us in the GTA (and especially us in the snow removal industry), the real questions are - when will the rain change over to freezing rain and how much will we end up getting. 🥶

Here’s what we know: we’ve got a subtropic system, from the Gulf of Mexico, moving into the area bringing warm temperatures and an abundant amount of (potentially record breaking) rain. This warm and wet system is expected to move into the GTA overnight Friday into Saturday. This is where it gets messy- A cold front of Arctic air will move in behind the storm, late Saturday into Sunday, dropping temperatures considerably.

What does this mean: As the band of cold Arctic air moves in and collides with the subtropic system, it will cause the rain to change over to freezing rain, ice pellets or even snow depending on your location. These conditions also increase the risk, for any standing water or wet surfaces, to freeze and become dangerous.

Although exact temperatures and precipitation amounts are still undetermined (dependent on the interaction of these two systems) we are preparing for a wet and icy weekend! 🥶☔️❄️
Our very own Ken Jorgenson at his book signing for ‘The Black Horse Diaries - a year in the life of a small town Ontario pub’! Congratulations Ken 🍻
It’s a winter wonderland out there today! ☃️ We can thank an Albert Clipper for the rapidly accumulating snow which started around 5:30am - right in time for the morning commute 🙄. Luckily, Clippers are typically fast moving systems, and the snow should taper off in the GTA area around noon ❄️ Drive safe everyone!
It’s been one heck of a start to this winter season 😅 In MPS’ 30 years of snow removal, were not sure we’ve ever had a season start this early with such intensity! Shoutout to our #mpssnowteam and everyone in the snow biz who’s slugging through 💪🏻❄️
We received this message from one of our longtime winter employees, he’s plowed for us for over 7 years and is now one of our plow supervisors. We love hearing positive feedback from our staff, as we strive to build the best snow team around! 💪🏻❄️
The calm after the storm (kinda) ❄️☀️ The GTA was faced with record breaking snow yesterday, as much as 15cm in some areas! This first snow event of the season was challenging for multiple reasons, and our awesome snow team has been working around the clock since Sunday morning to prepare and manage it. We’d like to send a big shoutout to the whole #MPSsnowteam , everyone dug deep and are continuing to do a great job💪🏻 THANK YOU!
Well folks, this could be a record breaker! We’re currently experiencing a low pressure system moving in from south of the Great Lakes. This system is expected to drop 10-15cm of snow accumulation in the GTA area. It’s pretty unusual to get this much snow so early in the season, but the MPS team is rallying and will be providing our usual great services in these tough conditions. Be safe out there! ❄️
