SD&G – A winter storm warning is in effect for Cornwall, SD&G, as well as much of southern and Eastern Ontario.

Environment Canada says 10-15 centimeters of snow will fall today (Saturday) before it changes to freezing rain overnight.

The freezing rain is expected to last several hours before it changes to rain Sunday morning.

The weather agency says ice could be 5-10 millimeters in the SD&G region and closer to 15 millimeters in the Ottawa Valley.

After the freezing rain and rain ends (Sunday’s high is plus 8) , the temperature will snap down Sunday night (low minus 9).

Environment Canada says people should consider postponing non-essential travel this weekend and, if you’re out on the roads, be prepared for quickly changing and deteriorating conditions.
