An early taste of winter.
The first accumulating snowfall event of the season is expected tonight into Sunday morning.
A low pressure system tracking just south of the Great Lakes will come close enough to Eastern and Central Ontario to bring measurable snow to the region tonight into Sunday. Most areas will receive 2 to 5 cm of snow, with amounts of 5 to 10 cm possible over higher ground in a few localities.
The precipitation will ease off slowly Sunday as the low pressure area moves away.
Motorists should be prepared for the first winter driving conditions of the season. Untreated roads may become covered in snow and slush, and become slippery as a result.
