Special weather statement in effect for:
- Niagara Falls – Welland – Southern Niagara Region
- St. Catharines – Grimsby – Northern Niagara Region
Another significant snowfall on the way tonight into Saturday.
A Colorado low is expected to trek towards Southern Ontario tonight, with snow spreading across much of the region this evening. Snow will continue overnight into Saturday morning. Snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 centimetres are likely with a few locales receiving in excess of 10 cm. The snow is forecast to change to rain on Saturday as mild air pays a brief visit. The rain will then change back to some snow Saturday night as colder air returns in the wake of the low, with perhaps a couple more centimetres of snow possible.
This snow is expected to cause deteriorating winter travel conditions Friday night and Saturday.
