Cloudy today with chance of showers or flurries this morning, windy with a high plus 2.

Tonight mainly cloudy and the low -7.

Overcast Tuesday and the high plus 2.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for:

  • Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale
  • Midland - Coldwater - Orr Lake
  • Orillia - Lagoon City - Washago

A wintery mix of weather slated for Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

A winter storm is expected to develop over the United States central plains today and track northeastward reaching the Great Lakes late Tuesday night.

The storm is expected to bring a period of heavy snow over Central and Eastern Ontario Tuesday night followed by a risk of some freezing rain and ice pellets.

Total snowfall amounts may be a few centimetres from the Bruce Peninsula and east of Georgian Bay into Eastern Ontario.

The primary threats with this storm appear to be reduced visibility in snow and blowing snow followed by some icing due to any freezing rain.

It should transition over to rain in most areas later Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

Gusty winds will accompany the approaching storm before gradually diminishing late Wednesday night as the storm moves out of the area and into Quebec.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
