Special Weather StatementIssued at 17:46 Tuesday 07 February 2023
Freezing rain possible Thursday.
Freezing rain. Ice accretion of a few millimetres is possible.
Snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are possible for areas over higher terrain toward the Ontario - Quebec border, and from North Bay to Manitoulin Island.
Thursday afternoon to Thursday night.
A wintry mix of precipitation arrives Thursday afternoon and may begin as snow before transitioning to ice pellets and freezing rain. Precipitation is expected to change over to rain in most areas by Thursday night. A prolonged period of freezing rain is expected and freezing rain warnings may be required as the event draws nearer. At this time, accumulating snowfall is most likely over Algonquin Park, toward the Ontario - Quebec border, and from North Bay to Manitoulin Island. A quicker changeover to ice pellets and freezing rain would reduce snowfall amounts.
Travel conditions may become hazardous due to icy and slippery roads and walkways.
