Environment Canada is warning of the potential for heavy rain changing to snow Today.
They say that a strengthening low pressure system will track towards the Great Lakes today. As it gets closer, rain possibly heavy at times, is expected to spread into Southwestern Ontario early this morning, with total rainfall amounts of 15 to 25 mm forecast by late afternoon.
Due to the nearly saturated conditions from recent rains and snowmelt, impacts from this rain are possible in some areas.
As the low pressure system passes by just to the south of the region, brisk northerly winds will begin to pull in colder air. Thus rain will change over quickly to snow late this afternoon or early evening. The snow may fall heavily at times this evening with accumulations of up to 10 cm or so possible by later tonight.
Driving conditions will quickly deteriorate as the rain changes over to snow later today. Motorists should plan for extra time to reach their destination due to low visibility in heavier snow and accumulating snow on untreated roads.
