0

Snowfall warning continued for:
South River – Burk’s Falls,
Western Algonquin Park – Lake of Two Rivers,
Huntsville – Baysville,
Town of Parry Sound – Rosseau – Killbear Park,
Bruce Peninsula – Sauble Beach – Tobermory,

Current details:
Significant late season snowfall today and tonight.

Snow is expected to move into portions of Central Ontario later this morning or early afternoon. Total snowfall accumulations of 10 to 20 cm are likely by Monday morning.

The heaviest snow is generally expected in a swath of regions from the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula towards Algonquin. Some areas immediately south of this swath may change over to rain for a period of time which would result in lesser snowfall accumulations.

There will also be a risk of freezing rain in some areas.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions.

Snowfall warnings are issued when significant snowfall is expected.

Special weather statement continued for:
Barrie – Orillia – Midland,
Port Carling – Port Severn,
Bracebridge – Gravenhurst,

Precipitation associated with an approaching low pressure system is expected to move into portions of Southern Ontario this morning or afternoon. A messy mix of snow, ice pellets and freezing rain is possible, although a changeover to rain is anticipated as temperatures will likely rise just above the freezing mark.

With temperatures very close to the freezing mark, snowfall and rainfall amounts are highly uncertain. Generally 5 cm or so are likely with 10 to 25 mm of rain also possible. However, if temperatures are slightly colder, snowfall accumulations could be higher.

Any places that experience a changeover to rain will change back to snow tonight.

Motorists are advised to prepare for potentially hazardous travel conditions today and tonight.
