Alerts in Effect
Special Weather StatementIssued at 05:02 Thursday 30 March 2017
March will end on a wintery note.
A low pressure system over Missouri will track towards Southern Ontario in the couple of days.
Snow associated with this weather system is expected to spread into the regions tonight and continue into Friday, although it may become mixed with or change to freezing rain or rain in some locales. The precipitation should then taper off Friday night. Total snowfall amounts of between 5 and 10 cm are likely in some areas, although they could be higher should the changeover to rain not occur. Less snowfall accumulations are expected over areas in closer proximity to Lake Ontario due to slightly milder temperatures.
At this time, it does not appear that snowfall warnings will be required. However some uncertainty remains, and the evolution of this weather system continues to be monitored closely.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to email@example.com or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
