NATION VALLEY — Environment Canada calls it an “early taste of winter,” warning that motorists should “be prepared for the first winter driving conditions of the season. Untreated roads may become covered in snow and slush, and become slippery as a result.”

The first accumulating snowfall event of the season is expected to persist into Sunday morning, delivering 2 to 5 centimetres of snow — and as high as 5 to 10 cm over higher ground in some localities. The federal agency issued a special weather statement for much of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry earlier today.

Environment Canada says the precipitation will ease off slowly tomorrow as the low pressure area moves away.
