Mixed bag of weather results in special weather statement for Windsor region

Mixed bag of weather results in special weather statement for Windsor region

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for all of Nova Scotia, calling for a mix of snow, ice and rain on Wednesday.

Some areas received more than a foot of snow, and meteorologists say more is on the way early next week. How about as rain?

It says this weather system may have a significant impact on travel.

The storm watch does not expire until Wednesday morning.

Over Sunday night, snow was expected to be confined to the mountains, with a "VERY BRIEF" break on Monday morning before another winter system began dropping snow in the Seattle area. "Plan on slippery road conditions and reductions to visibility". It was expected to taper off in time for the Monday morning commute, but the next storm was on its way later in the day.

The National Weather Service said a storm warning remained in effect, with an additional 1 to 3 inches (2.5 to 7.6 cm) possible on Saturday and another storm in the forecast early next week.




The freezing rain is then expected to turn into rain Tuesday afternoon.

The National Weather Service has decreased forecast snow totals for Northeastern Minnesota, however, with only a 30 percent chance that Duluth, the Iron Range and most of the North Shore will see 6 inches or more.

How much is possible in an extreme case?

Last week, freezing rain brought some chaos to the region, with classes being cancelled at both local schools boards and over a dozen flights in and out London being either delayed or cancelled.

And what if this storm's a dud?
