UPDATE 2 Monday, April 15th: Special weather statement ENDED for the Parry Sound region. Currently there no weather alerts for the area.

UPDATE Monday, April 15th: Environment Canada has lifted the snowfall warning for the Parry Sound region and replaced it with a Special weather statement.

Snowfall amounts during the night were a lot less than the agency had expected. 

However, snow has been intensifying somewhat early this morning with another 4 to 8 cm expected before the snow ends later this morning.

Drivers should be careful as poor road conditions are likely this morning.

Environment Canada has issued a Snowfall WARNING as a significant late-season snowfall is forecast for the Parry Sound area Sunday and Sunday night.

The agency says snow is expected to move into portions of Central Ontario later this morning or early afternoon with total snowfall accumulations of 10 to 20 cm likely by Monday morning.

The heaviest snow is generally expected in a swath of regions from the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula towards Algonquin.

Some areas immediately south of this swath may change over to rain for a period of time which would result in lesser snowfall accumulations.

There will also be a risk of freezing rain in some areas.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow so be extra careful if you plan on being out there today.

Also, prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions.

If you wish to report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
