Tracking weekend winter storm

Tracking weekend winter storm”

A mix of rain and freezing rain will arrive in Toronto and Hamilton on Wednesday, with temperatures eventually rising above freezing by later afternoon or evening.

While the snowfall would be the most the area's seen this winter, it's the high winds that will follow that could make travel treacherous for the Thursday afternoon commute. Any untreated surface may be slippery. Outside of this narrow corridor, 2 to 4 inches are expected by Thursday afternoon.Strong northwest winds will develop late Wednesday night and continue through Thursday. The current record is 56° set in 2017.

All areas will see freezing conditions by late Friday night, so whatever falls will become icy by Saturday morning!

As far as that weekend snow event, there are lots of factors in play. Snow could be heavy depending on the storm track. However, the odds of impactful weather are going up and it may disrupt your plans Friday night and Saturday. A thin glazing of ice to a couple hundredths of ice accretion is possible in advance of the change to snow. Behind the storm look for another blast of cold temperatures for several days.

As the system develops, we'll keep you updated on the FOX19 NOW First Alert Weather App. "Travel conditions may become hard Wednesday evening and continue through Thursday".

In Ottawa, freezing rain is expected on Wednesday, mainly later in the day, which could contribute to poor road conditions in the Ottawa-Gatineau area. Rain on Friday will change to snow overnight with 30-50 cm of accumulation possible.

"Please prepare for some wintry weather Friday into Saturday (whether it's 1" or 12").
