Weather: A messy mix of fog, drizzle and snow to start the year

The new year started with two advisories in effect for the Ottawa area.

Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued a fog advisory for early Saturday, with fog patches dissipating late this morning.

The agency also warns that snow is expected to develop over the area late Saturday evening, and will continue into Sunday with peak snowfall rates of one to two cm per hour possible.

Total snowfall amounts of five to 10 cm are possible by the time the snow comes to an end Sunday evening.

Travel may be hazardous Saturday night and Sunday morning as untreated surfaces are expected to become snow covered and icy.

This snow is the result of a low pressure system passing south of Lake Erie Saturday night. There is still uncertainty regarding the track of this system. Should the low pressure system track farther south, the resulting snowfall amounts would be less.

The agency recommends you consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.

For New Year’s Day, the forecast high is 0 C with an overnight low of -9 C with periods of drizzle beginning early in the morning, ending by mid-day. There is also a possibility of freezing drizzle during that time.

Sunday’s high should be around -10 C with the mercury dipping to -20 C overnight as skies clear.

Monday is expected to be sunny with a high of -12 C and low of -12 C.

A mix of sun and cloud, with a 40 per cent chance of flurries and milder temperatures are forecast for Tuesday with a high of -4 C and a low of -7 C.

Wednesday’s forecast calls for periods of snow, the high 0 C, and low of -14 C.
