Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Sudbury and surrounding  areas. 

The statement warns residents of  a messy mix of snow, ice pellets, and freezing rain that is expected to slam northeastern Ontario starting this afternoon. 

The snowstorm is expected to develop over areas adjacent to Lake Huron and Lake Superior early in the afternoon before moving northeast. 

Most areas in the storm's paths will see a quick transition to ice pellets this afternoon or tonight with some areas receiving significant ice pellet accumulations. 

Heavy snow will then redevelop late tonight or tomorrow morning before slowing tapering off tomorrow night, the statement read.

Snowfall amounting up to 20 centimetres is expected between tomorrow and Tuesday morning.

This will all be coupled with strong northerly winds resulting in blowing snow causing reduced visibility for motorist.
