Snow Clearing Updates – Dec 29, 2015 – 5:00 am

It took a while but the warmer air has quickly moved in from Mississauga to Niagara. Temperatures are all above freezing now and it's just raining now. Parts of Toronto are still seeing ice pellets and Markham is still at -4C and up to 6 cm reported. This should change over to by 5 am though and little further accumulation. 2-5 mm of rain is expected for the daytime today with highs ranging from 6C in Niagara to 3C in Barrie. Winds have been gusting close to 80 km/h too. They will ease somewhat by dawn, but still gusting to 45 km/h for the Niagara Peninsula through the day and veering from easterly to southwesterly.

Dry conditions are expected by mid-afternoon through the overnight with lows around freezing and still quiet into midday Wednesday. It looks like more wet flurries are on the way for late in the day Wednesday. It's early to say for sure but there could be 1 or 2 cm of accumulation into midnight if it gets cold enough, but right now we think temperatures will be around 1 or 2C during this time.
