  • Westport – Charleston Lake

Winter weather travel advisory in effect for Saturday night into Sunday.

Snow is expected to develop over the area late this evening. Snow will continue into Sunday with peak snowfall rates of 1 to 2 cm per hour possible.

Total snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are possible by the time the snow comes to an end early Sunday evening. Local amounts near 15 cm may be possible for areas near the St. Lawrence River.

Travel may be hazardous tonight and Sunday morning as untreated surfaces are expected to become snow-covered and icy.

This snow is the result of a low-pressure system passing south of Lake Erie Saturday night. There is still uncertainty regarding the track of this system. Should the low-pressure system track farther south, the resulting snowfall amounts would be less.
