There is a chill in the air across Southern Ontario, and not just because of the crisp temperatures and cool breeze. Lake effect snow has given a winter like feeling to the lee of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. Five to ten centimetres of lake effect flurries have accumulated in some areas, especially in the Dundalk Highlands including such communities as Markdale, Hanover and Dundalk, as well as around Barrie. A special weather statement from Environment Canada says a further accumulation of 2 to 5 centimetres is likely this morning before the snow bands drift southwards and begin to change to wet flurries or rain showers.
