January 28, 2011 — After nearly a week with barely any wintery conditions, parts of southern Ontario could see up to 10 cm of snow through the weekend.

Although most of the province has been spared from the wintery conditions this week, an Alberta clipper moving in for the weekend will have residents remembering that there's still half of the winter season left.

“The first clipper moved through on Thursday with only scattered flurries throughout the region,” says Brian Dillon, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “It's the second clipper that will bring 5 to 10 cm of snow to parts of southern Ontario Saturday.” Temperatures are also expected to cool down behind the system.

Police officials recommend adjusting your speed when driving and packing a winter survival kit if you plan to travel when the weather poses a risk on the roads. It was just last Friday when whiteout conditions lead to a deadly pile-up between Barrie and Orillia. Conditions can change rapidly so it's important to prepare for reduced visibilities when it snows.
