Special weather statement in effect for:

Significant snowfall expected Sunday.

A strengthening low pressure system is expected to bring significant snowfall to the region beginning Sunday morning and continuing through the day before tapering off Sunday evening.

There remains some uncertainty as to the track of the low; however, there is the potential that some areas could see total snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm by Sunday night. Strong wind gusts up to 60 km/h could produce local blowing snow reducing visibilities.
