March to exit with mighty roar
It looks as though March will be going out like a lion.
A winter storm watch remained in effect late Sunday for much of Northwestern Ontario.
Environment Canada was calling for snow and ice pellets today for the western stretches of the region and most of the North Shore. Accumulations are to range from two centimetres in west to 20 in the Geraldton area.
A risk of freezing rain for this evening was also in the forecast.
Add some bulky winds to that, coming at us from the east at 40-60 km/h this morning and in the evening. That will produce blowing snow.
The wind is expected to to die down near midnight.
That taste of spring on sunny, mild Sunday should have been savored as daytime highs will struggle to get over 0 C until the end of the week. A high of 5 C, with sunshine, is expected for Saturday.
On the bright side, sunshine is in the forecast starting on Wednesday.
