With an early spring storm expected, Greater Sudbury is under a special weather statement from Environment Canada.

A Colorado low is expected to begin affecting the region tonight. Precipitation is expected to begin as rain, transitioning to snow Wednesday morning. 

Snow, which may be heavy at times, is expected to continue through Wednesday night, easing through the day Thursday. Significant snowfall accumulations are possible by the time snow begins to ease on Thursday.

Strong easterly winds will develop tonight with wind gusts up to 70 km/h, possibly up to 80 km/h for Manitoulin Island and areas along the shoreline. The winds will ease on Wednesday afternoon.

Power outages will be possible. Travel may become hazardous due to accumulating snow and reduced visibility.

Confidence is low, as there remains a high degree of uncertainty with the low's track, which will have significant impacts on temperatures, snowfall amounts and when rain will transition to snow. Warnings will be issued as the event draws nearer.
