Winter weather advisory for Big Bear area



A warning for Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent was cancelled soon before 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

For the week ahead, the weather outlook anticipates a mostly sunny Monday with a high near 27.

Rain and sleet will become all rain after 7 a.m. Sunday south of I-287 and the Merritt but continue as freezing rain and sleet farther north until around 11 a.m.

According to the national weather agency, there's a risk of freezing rain Saturday evening, followed by 15 to 25 mm of rain and gusty winds on Sunday. High temperatures will once again return to the mid- to upper 30s across much of the state with the coast seeing highs in the mid- to upper 40s.

Sosnowski added: 'Strengthening winds will greatly lower the visibility and cause extensive blowing and drifting snow, especially at the tail end of the storm and even as the sky begins to clear'.


The advisory is in effect beginning at noon Sunday, March 10, and continuing until 5 a.m. Wednesday, March 13, for areas located above the 4,500 feet in elevation. Temperatures for nearly the entire region will warm above freezing Saturday morning, so most of us will see just rain. Exercise caution if you must travel.

As temperatures rise through the morning, any snow over southeast Mass. will quickly change over to rain.

Conditions should improve by Sunday afternoon for most areas, but some icy spots are still possible across the higher terrain of northern Mass. into New Hampshire.

The wind will blow briskly with gusts of 40 miles per hour later Saturday and early Sunday but rain chances are gone by Sunday. Some patchy fog may develop at times, and drizzle is possible in the metro as early as 9pm.

The weather is expected to take a turn for the worst today with blustery conditions widely and some hill snow in Scotland, northern England and Wales.
