Special weather statement in effect for:
- Niagara Falls – Welland – Southern Niagara Region
- St. Catharines – Grimsby – Northern Niagara Region
A system bringing snow, ice pellets, freezing rain and rain to Southern Ontario Tuesday.
A low pressure system developing over the American plains will be tracking towards Southern Ontario, bringing a wintery mix of precipitation to the region Tuesday.
For Extreme Southwestern Ontario east towards the Niagara Peninsula: precipitation is forecast to begin as snow or ice pellets then transition through a period of freezing rain before temperatures rise above zero and a change to rain occurs. The freezing rain could persist for a few hours and some locales may require a freezing rain warning. Further north, for areas east of Southern Lake Huron to regions north of Lake Ontario including the Greater Toronto Area: precipitation is expected to be predominantly snow, however, it could be mixed with ice pellets and freezing rain at times. General snowfall amounts in the 5 to 10 cm range will be possible with lower amounts in areas that receive more ice pellets or freezing rain.
There is still uncertainty with regards to precipitation type and amount. Environment Canada meteorologists are watching the evolution of this storm closely and will issue further statements or alerts as needed.
