Cardinal in snowfall
A heavy snowfall expected Sat., Mar. 22. It may be the first full day of spring, but it's no surprise that mother nature is still in a wintery mood. A potent disturbance currently over Chicago is expected to carve a path across Southern Ontario tonight. A period of heavy
snow is expected beginning tonight near Lake Huron reaching the Barrie area today and far Eastern Ontario later tonight. The snow is expected to be very heavy at times with snowfall rates of more than 3 cm per hour. Although the duration of snow is relatively short, the accumulation of heavy snow will likely reach 15 cm before it tapers off later tonight near Lake Huron and over Eastern Ontario  Travellers are urged to use caution tonight into Saturday morning due to visibilities of 200 metres or less in heavy snow as well as significant and rapid accumulation on untreated roads.
