Ontario: One more day of warmth before messy weather returns
Alerts in Effect
Special Weather StatementIssued at 22:17 Sunday 23 February 2020
Snow with a chance of rain over the south beginning on Wednesday
A low pressure system developing over the American Southwest will move through the New England States on Wednesday before lying over the Gulf of St. Lawrence on Friday.
It is still too early to determine exactly what will be the weather associated with this vigorous system. However, the storm is expected to cause a mixed bag of precipitation and strong winds. For now, north of the river, colder temperatures will likely bring snow, while the precipitation in the south will likely turn to rain with a short period of freezing rain during the changeover.
Total snowfall amounts will vary depending on how the system's track evolves, but it should exceed 15 centimetres over several areas north of the river and over the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula.
Subsequent weather statements will provide more information as the low pressure system's track becomes more certain.
