More snow on the way

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement Saturday Feb. 10/2018 saying that up to 10 cm. of snow is expected today in South Niagara followed by a “wintry mix” through Sunday.

“Another round of snow is expected to develop across portions of Southern Ontario and the Golden Horseshoe today,” the statement said. “The snow should become more widespread later this morning or early this afternoon and persist until early evening. General snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are anticipated, with the highest amounts most likely over the Niagara region.”

“There will be a lull in the precipitation for much of the night before yet another disturbance moves into the area early Sunday morning,” the statement said. “Several additional centimetres of snow are possible during the day Sunday. However, there is also a threat of some freezing rain and ice pellets.”

“Conditions should improve Sunday evening with mainly fair weather to start the upcoming work week.”
