Snowy conditions will continue on Sunday with additional centimetres of snow during the day.

Rainfall warnings are in effect for this evening and overnight for Fredericton area, Fundy National Park, Grand Lake and Queens County, Charlotte County, Moncton, Saint John, Sussex and Kings County, and the Kennebecasis Valley.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for southern Ontario, with a second round of snow expected to develop across the region over the weekend.

The weather agency urged Islanders to slow down while driving in slippery conditions and to maintain a safe following distance. "General snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are anticipated, with the highest amounts most likely over the Niagara region".

The rain will switch back to snow in the afternoon and should end sometime Sunday evening.

Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces. It's expected this will change to rain by Monday morning, Environment Canada says.
