A winter weather travel advisory is in effect for Greater Sudbury and vicinity.
Snowfall is expected this evening through Friday afternoon.
Rain showers will change to snow late this afternoon or this evening as Arctic air floods into the region and temperatures begin to fall. Total snowfall amounts of five to 15 cm are expected by the time snow tapers off Friday afternoon.
Temperatures will dip considerably tonight which may lead to icy road conditions. As a result, travel will become hazardous.
Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Slow down driving in slippery conditions. Watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Road closures are possible.
