Cloudy weather will keep Sunday morning temperatures above freezing: expect lows in the upper 30s to low 40s. That snow stretches into Monday Morning with light accumulations between 1 and 3 inches likely. Several inches of snow will accumulate before mixing with sleet and changing to freezing rain Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night.

Environment Canada says there is significant mixed precipitation in the forecast, including snow and ice pellets for Southern Ontario. More of the precipitation will fall as rain and sleet instead of snow. Snow flurries are already falling in Franklin county as of 5 PM and will continue to become more widespread.

The statement warned that the storm could have "a significant impact" on travel in the region.

In Seattle, officials urged people to stay off the roads as traffic slowed to a standstill in some places because of the snow. The city is set for another storm Friday into Saturday, as are the areas around the rest of western Washington State.

Afternoon highs will reach the low 40s for everyone. The snow may then change to ice pellets and freezing rain for a few hours before changing back to snow by Tuesday night as colder air arrives in the wake of the low pressure system. Some showers also develop Sunday, but our next best chance of rain comes between Monday and Tuesday of next week.

On Tuesday, the city is expected to see a high of -1 C. This system appears to resemble the November snow we received followed by freezing rain and eventually rain.

Thursday: Mostly sunny and a tad cooler.
