Snow Clearing Updates – Dec 29, 2015 – 8:00 am

CURRENT WEATHER FORECAST
It took a while but the warmer air has quickly moved in from the GTA to Niagara. It's still below freezing though north of Newmarket. Temperatures are all above freezing now and it's just raining now. 3-6 mm of rain is expected for the daytime today with highs ranging from 6C in Niagara to 3C in Barrie. Winds though noticeably lighter now from peaking over 80 km/h last night.

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.
