Environment Canada has ended the winter storm watch it issued for southern Ontario, however, it says a special weather statement remains in effect.
The agency says a weather system originating in Texas is expected to bring snow, mixed at times with ice pellets, to the region this evening, then change to rain before morning.
The latest forecast says some areas could get five to 10 centimetres of snow, as well as ice pellets. The forecast on Sunday night had warned of snowfall amounts of as much as 30 centimetres in some areas.
It will be first significant snowfall of the year for the region, which has so far seen unseasonably warm temperatures.
A winter storm watch remains in effect for Barrie and Orillia, while areas further north and to the east are under winter storm warnings.
