Special Weather StatementIssued at 06:12 Thursday 27 October 2016
The first appreciable snow of the season for parts of Central and Eastern Ontario is expected. Snow will begin this morning and may be mixed with rain in some areas before ending overnight. Accumulations in the 2 to 5 centimetre range are expected. Local amounts of 5 to 10 centimetres are possible over higher elevations like the Haliburton Highlands.
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.
The snow is due to a low pressure system that is currently centred over the west end of Lake Erie and is forecast to cross Lake Ontario this afternoon.
