Messy Weather On The Way

Another blast of winter before spring like weather returns.

A special weather statement remains in effect from Environment Canada.

Meteorologist, Etienne Gregoire says we can expect 15-25mm of rain before upwards of 10cm of snow.

Gregoire says it's difficult to draw the line between rain changing to snow.

Leamington, Kingsville, Tecumseh, Windsor, the bulk of the precipitation for us will fall in the form of rain," says Gergoire. "Having said that, there will be cold air drawn in behind after 4:00pm or 5:00pm and that rain will change to wet, slushy snow."

The good news is, this weather won't last long. "Being February I'm sure you've noticed that the sun is really strong this time of year. So for those of us who have no plan on shovelling whatever snow is going to fall this evening and tonight, if you wait a day or two, the sun will take care of it on the weekend," says Gregoire.)

The rain will be heavy at times later today before snow begins, with up to 10cm possible for the drive home.
