Lake effect snow and localized snow squalls are expected to develop east of Lake Huron and southeast of Georgian Bay early Sunday morning as the system that brought widespread snowfall to the region moves out of Ontario. At this point, the lake effect snow appears fairly disorganized which means significant accumulation isn’t expected from this event. There’s the potential for a few heavier bands of snow to develop off of Lake Huron with one developing just south of Goderich and stretch inland towards the Stratford region around the noon hour and another one further north through Kincardine and Hanover. These regions have the possibility of picking up local amounts between 6-12cm IF these bands develop. Some models show just weak lake effect snow throughout the day so all areas may stay under 6cm of accumulation. Between 2-6cm is possible for the other areas east of Lake Huron and Southeast of Georgian Bay including Barrie, Orillia and Owen Sound. Everyone else can expect less than 2cm of accumulation with Eastern Ontario seeing a centimetre or two of additional accumulation just after midnight from the exiting system.
