It expects periods of rain or drizzle to change to snow overnight as cold air floods into the region early Friday, Nov. 26, and temperatures begin to fall.

“Periods of rain or drizzle will change to snow early this afternoon as cold air floods into the region and temperatures fall,” Environment Canada released in a statement just before noon (Nov. 26). Total snowfall amounts near five cm are expected by the time the snow tapers off this evening. As a result of the falling temperatures and fresh snowfall, roads may become icy and travel may be impacted.”

The weather agency says falling temperatures and snowfall will lead to hazardous road conditions.
