Southern Ontario may soon see snow, ice pellets, and possible freezing rain just in time to make Monday’s commute easier.
A special weather warning was issued Dec. 26 to parts of southern Ontario, including Cambridge, Waterloo Region and Guelph. The warning called for snow and a wintry mix possible Monday, Dec. 27.
The weather statement states that snow will continue for a few more hours before transitioning to ice pellets, or freezing rain. “By Monday afternoon the precipitation will end or transition into light drizzle or freezing rain with temperatures hovering at zero or just above zero.”
Environment Canada estimates that snowfall accumulations of five cm or more are possible. If freezing rain or freezing drizzle occurs, some ice may form.
Monday morning commutes could be affected. It is recommended that the public monitor future forecasts for more details.
