Met Éireann issue snow and ice warning for 9 counties

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Ottawa and the surrounding area

A snow ice weather warning has been issued by Met Éireann for all of Ireland.

He said: "It will still be quite windy on Monday in the morning and will pick up again.
"We will maybe see gusts of up to 40mph".

According to the Met Office, heading into Sunday, "a band of rain and hill snow will cross the United Kingdom, giving snow locally to lower levels in the north". The forecaster is also warning of poor visibility, with slippery and icy conditions at times. No rain or snow is expected during the day Saturday, and temperatures will be in the low 40s and mid-30s.

As of Friday morning, we knew to expect an especially cold weekend, but now Met Éireann has made it official.

Prior to that, a weak storm system will be drifting across the Mid-Atlantic region Friday afternoon and Friday night, brushing parts of South Jersey with a mix of wet snow and light rain, the weather service said.

"Hypothermia kicks in when someone's body temperature drops below 35°C (95°F) and, sadly, is often fatal once the body temperature drops below 30°C (86°F)".

A WEATHER warning for strong winds and gusts has been issued for the area.

Prime minister’s Regina trip cancelled in favour of private meetings in Ottawa
Wilson-Raybould had the power to scrap the decision to go to trial, but decided against it. He has said he totally disagrees with Wilson-Raybould's characterization of events.

Rain will continue across the area this morning, coming down moderate to even heavy at times.

A low around 33 was forecast overnight into Sunday, when the daytime high is forecast near 43, at the airport. Parts of the Lake Cumberland area are under a marginal risk (1 out of 5) for severe storms, so we'll be keeping a close eye on that.

At night, cloudy, with a low around 66.

The evening sees a mostly South West or southerly wind decreasing for a while with clear spells in the East before further Atlantic systems move in from the South West.

After weeks of bitterly cold temperatures and mountains of snow, it looks like the GTA is in for a bit of a warmup this weekend.

It advised people to get their shopping done on Saturday, if possible, to cut out a need to travel while the alert is in place.
