Tuesday Winter Weather Advisory, Slushy Mix Expected

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for almost all of the Ozarks.

Get ready for a dramatic change in winter weather starting Tuesday night. Snow continues this evening, overnight, and possibly lingers into tomorrow morning.

The weather service says precipitation totals will be around 1 to 2 inches across the region before the rain moves out. "Freezing rain near a.10" of an inch possible before switching to rain as temperatures warm into the 40s.

A Colorado low is tracking northeast, across Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, and should arrive in Ottawa on Wednesday. The snow is expected to change to freezing rain late in the afternoon.

As the temperature rises, so will the winds, which could gust to 70-80 km/h later in the day.

The bitter cold snap throughout the GTA is supposed to end Tuesday.

"Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery", Environment Canada warns.

Sunday: Partly sunny with a slight snow chance. Cloudy, with temperatures falling to around 22 by 5 p.m.

WEDNESDAY: Morning Snow Showers.

Rain, strong winds and mild temperatures are expected to persist until Friday morning before drier conditions and cold air returns.
