Snow will continue to spread eastward across south-central Canada tonight then into central Ontario on Saturday as a storm tracks from South Dakota to Lake Michigan.
As the storm strengthens a bit and picks up additional moisture later Saturday and Saturday night, there will be a narrow band of heavier snow in a line from Sault Ste. Marie to North Bay and points just north.
The storm will weaken slightly on Sunday as it gets into Quebec.
Storm likely starts as wet snow for Ottawa Saturday night then goes over to rain. This will be mostly rain for Montreal.
