High potential for snow on Family Day across southern Ontario
Saturday, February 15, 2014, 8:34 PM -
Southern Ontario could be in for a snowy Family Day Monday, as a low pressure system could potentially bring 5-10 cm of snowfall to the region.
Forecasters are still pinpointing the exact details of the storm, but say confidence is high that a system will make its way through southern Ontario Monday night through Tuesday morning.
"Each forecast weather model we use as a tool to create our forecasts are indicating a system moving through southern Ontario for Family Day Monday into Tuesday," says Dayna Vettese, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. "However, at this point, there is little to no consensus amongst the models with regards to timing, precipitation type or snowfall amounts. It is certainly a difficult forecast and will be refined several more times over the weekend."

Snow is expected to taper off Tuesday morning, but may linger for the morning commute.
