Let The Record Show (We Got Snow)

Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale
5:03 AM EDT Monday 6 April 2009
Snowfall warning for
Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale continued

Heavy snowfall on the way.

A significant low pressure area currently tracking across northeastern Ohio (thanks Ohio) will pass just south of the lower lakes today. Wet snow associated with the low has enveloped the extreme southwest through the Dundalk Highlands into southern Georgian Bay. It will continue throughout much of the day for many regions. General snowfall amounts of 15 centimetres are forecast by tonight with locally slightly higher amounts possible over the Dundalk Highlands and portions of the Oak Ridges moraine to the northwest of Toronto.

The snow will taper off to a few flurries tonight with the exception being areas to the south-southeast of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay where flurries and localized snowsqualls are expected. Several more centimetres of snow are likely in some of these areas. A snow squall warning is not out of the question for some snow belt locales, but seems somewhat unlikely as the squalls are not expected to be particularly intense.

Some blowing snow is also expected in many regions - mainly tonight as the mercury dips below the freezing mark.

Travel may be difficult due to accumulating snow and some blowing and drifting.
