A low pressure system is expected to track northeast across Lake Erie and Lake Ontario Thursday night which will bring a messy mix of wintry precipitation to southern Ontario. Precipitation will likely begin as rain this afternoon and transition to snow overnight. As temperatures drop to below the freezing mark tonight or early Thursday morning, icy and slippery conditions are possible, as water on roadways and surfaces will freeze.

At this time the track of the low pressure system is uncertain, and as such precipitation type, timing and amounts may change.

For information concerning flooding, please consult your local Conservation Authority or Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry District office. Visit for the latest details.
