Numbers for incoming snow revised downward

SD&G – Environment Canada has revised its numbers downward for the expected snow tonight and through Thursday.

This afternoon, it updated its special weather statement and said 6-12 centimeters (2.4-4.7 inches) of snow is possible.

That’s down from the 10-15 centimeters (3.9-5.9 inches) originally forecast.

“Latest guidance indicates that only 6 to 12 centimeters of accumulation will be possible by the time the snow tapers off Thursday morning,” it said.

The highest amounts are expected along the St. Lawrence River shoreline.

Environment Canada doesn’t expected to hit any snowfall totals that would warrant a snowfall warning (when 15 centimeters is slated to fall within 12 hours).
