A special weather statement remains in effect, as there is potential for icy conditions later this morning and afternoon.

Forecasters say rain and patches of dense fog will continue to affect the area early this morning.

The rain is forecast to change to snow by midday as temperatures plummet with the passage of a cold front.

There may also be a brief period of freezing rain during the changeover from rain to snow.

“Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots could become icy and slippery. Extra care should be taken when walking or driving in affected areas,” Environment Canada officials say.

The snow is forecast to taper off behind the cold front, limiting snowfall amounts to a few centimetres at most, forecasters say.
