Special Weather StatementIssued at 01:20 Thursday 27 October 2016
The first appreciable snow of the season is expected for parts of Southern Ontario.
Some snow has begun to fall in some areas of the higher terrain of the Dundalk Highlands in the overnight hours, although it is mixed with rain in some locales. It is expected to turn to generally snow towards morning but be generally light. Somewhat heavier snow is likely Thursday morning before mixing with rain in some areas before ending in the afternoon.
Accumulations in the 2 to 5 centimetre range are likely. Local amounts of 5 to 10 centimetres are possible over high elevations, specifically in the Creemore, Flesherton and Shelburne area.
Impacts include slushy accumulations on some roads. There is also a risk of some power outages due to brisk easterly winds potentially downing some snow-covered tree limbs onto power lines.
This snow is due to a low pressure system that is currently centred over northern Indiana and will track towards Lake Erie tonight and close to Lake Ontario Thursday.
