FORECAST: Light snow showers possible this weekend

IMPACTS: No concerns to travel for most of the day Sunday, but once the snow arrives, expect road conditions to deteriorate rather quickly.

A weak disturbance passes through the area today, bringing a chance of light snow or flurries in the afternoon.

The advisory ended around 3 p.m. But as the cold air catches up to the rain, the rain could mix with or change to snow Tuesday evening.

This Cold Warning will remain in effect until the low temperature for the day is projected to be above -15°C. Sunday night into Monday we should clear most of the cloud cover and allow for a bit of sunshine through the morning hours of Monday.

The first half of this weekend has shaped up pretty nicely with temperatures managing to make up into the mid 30s! Some accumulation seems likely before the snow ends by midday Tuesday. High temperatures will be in the upper 50s Tuesday.

Israel launches airstrikes on Iranian forces in Syria
Syria's air defense systems repelled an Israeli air attack in the country's south, the SANA news agency reported on Sunday. Syria's Pantsir and Buk air defense missile systems were used to shoot down Israeli rockets and knocked out seven of them.

In Minneapolis, Minnesota, where gusts brought a wind chill factor as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit (-29 Celsius), residents refused to cancel an outdoor hockey championship event on a frozen pond.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a chance of early morning L.E. snow showers, then becoming partly sunny.

"Strong and gusty west northwest winds will deliver wind chills in the single digits to below zero for much of the area late Wednesday and Wednesday night", meteorologists said in the forecast discussion.

These alerts - while some in Northern Ontario may find them humourous as temperatures are far colder in the northern regions, allow for action in Toronto, specifically for those most vulnerable, to take place.
