A Special Weather Statement remains in effect for the listening area.
Environment Canada says a messy mix of snow, ice pellets and freezing rain is expected this weekend into Monday.
Rain ahead of a slow moving system will begin late this afternoon and will change to snow tonight. The snow will persist into Saturday with total snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 centimeters possible over some areas by Saturday evening. Snow may be mixed with ice pellets at times which may limit the snow accumulation. A lull in the precipitation is likely Saturday night.
Another area of snow and ice pellets will move into the region Sunday morning before changing to freezing rain late Sunday. The freezing rain may persist into Monday. Some locales could see significant ice accumulations. Ice accumulations combined with gusty northeast winds may result in widespread power outages due to fallen tree limbs and power lines.
