Special to WC Online

WEST CARLETON – Environment Canada is telling West Carleton residents to expect a “multi-day snowfall event” starting tonight (Feb. 1) through Friday.

Although don’t expect as much snow as we saw on that record-breaking single day on Jan. 17, Environment Canada says the skies will open up starting tonight in a Special Weather Statement released today (Feb. 1).

“Freezing rain or freezing drizzle tonight mixed with snow will transition to all snow by Wednesday (Feb. 2) morning,” Environment Canada said. “Regions in the vicinity of Georgian Bay may see rain mixed with snow tonight instead of freezing rain. Snow is expected to taper on Friday (Feb. 4). There is still some uncertainty regarding the track of the low-pressure system and therefore the total snowfall amounts.”

As of today, Environment Canada is expecting 10 to 20 centimetres by Friday. The weather organization believes visibility will be reduced due to snow and local blowing snow.
