A special weather statement is in effect for:

Bracebridge - Gravenhurst

Huntsville - Baysville

Environment Canada is warning of a late season snowfall Sunday and Sunday night.

Precipitation associated with an approaching low pressure system is expected to move into portions of Southern Ontario Sunday morning or afternoon. With temperatures near the freezing mark, a messy mix of snow, ice pellets and freezing rain are possible. Some areas may also change to rain if temperatures rise above the freezing mark.

Since the temperatures will be close to the freezing mark, there is a high degree of uncertainty regarding potential snowfall amounts. At this point, it appears that some areas may see snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 cm by Monday morning. However, for areas where precipitation changes to rain, amounts may be significantly less.

Motorists are advised to prepare for potentially hazardous travel conditions Sunday and Sunday night.
