Rain, snow on tap for Ontario early next week
Sunday, April 6, 2014, 8:20 AM -
If you live in southern Ontario, be sure to keep those umbrellas on standby.
Heavy rain is on tap for Monday afternoon into Tuesday for much of southern Ontario, as a US low tracks across the region.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement ahead of the messy system.
"Rain is expected to develop over parts of southern Ontario during the day Monday, reaching Georgian Bay in the evening," writes EC. "The rain may quickly change to heavy wet snow Monday evening mainly over the higher terrain of the Dundalk and Haliburton Highlands."
Current models indicate that significant accumulation in excess of 10 cm of snow is possible in these areas before it tapers off early Tuesday.

But don't fret Ontarians, there is some good news. Temperatures will slowly climb in behind the system, quickly erasing any memory of the snow Monday night.
"Temperatures are expected to climb into the mid-teens (south of Georgian Bay), but will be likely more muted east of Georgian Bay," adds EC.
Be sure to check back as we continue to monitor this system.
