This disturbance is very moisture starved and is only going to bring minor accumulations.

The city of Brainerd declared a snow emergency in advance of the storm expected to arrive this weekend.

CityNews meteorologist Adam Stiles says from 11 p.m. Saturday night until 5 a.m. Sunday morning, we will see a mixed mess of precipitation across the GTA. "This will make for hazardous conditions on roads and paths".

The status yellow snow-ice warning will come into effect at 11pm this evening, Saturday, and will expire at 6am on Monday morning.

The avalanche danger was set at "extreme" (level 5 of 5) by the Colorado Avalanche Information Center across most of the central Colorado mountains. Temperatures are likely to fall close to freezing. The heavy, wet snow will also "add extra stress to buildings, which could lead to roof collapses", the Weather Service warned.

Avoid travel if possible once conditions deteriorate.

There were no cautions in Sunday's Penzoil 400 for race incidents, just the two yellow flags to end each stage. Pole victor Kevin Harvick led a race-high 88 laps to finish fourth and Kurt Busch completed the Top 5.

Monday, snowplows will begin at 7 a.m. and do cleanup where cars were parked on the previous passes on east-west streets and haul snow from the downtown district. Rain showers develop overnight.

Between 1 to 3 inches of snowfall is expected before the changeover to rain during the day Sunday.

These gusts will become even stronger winds as we move into the next week, with a risk of gale force winds returning to north-western coastal fringes of the United Kingdom on Tuesday.

That mix will turn to all rain about 10 a.m., with clouds and ccasional showers filling out Sunday.
