A special weather statement has been issued for Waterloo Region, Wellington County and much of Southern Ontario.

After a break in the precipitation Sunday afternoon, the NWS predicts a second round of wintry weather will affect the region Sunday night into Monday with freezing rain, sleet and snow.

Unfortunately for those of us that have had enough of Old Man Winter, this may not be our only weather headache this week as yet another storm could provide additional snowfall by late Thursday into early Friday. "Tuesday PM commute could be impacted [with] slick roads, hazardous travel, and low visibility".

Monday mornings commute will likely be more smooth; Environment Canada says there's a risk of freezing drizzle and a small chance of snow in the forecast.

The city will see a small taste of precipitation tonight, with two centimetres of snow expected overnight. Total snowfall amounts of 25 to 35 cm are likely before the snow tapers off during the day Wednesday.

Pacific Northwest residents who are more accustomed to rain than snow are digging out from a winter storm and bracing for more.

Freezing rain warnings may be issued as the system draws closer.

And what if this storm's a dud?

Light snow started to make its way into the interior lowlands in the late afternoon Sunday, the National Weather Service said. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the entire state for a period of snow, followed by a change to wintry mix and rain.
