11:10PM Update:

A brief special update.

The precipitation has begun as ice pellets across Kingston.
This has been persisting for the past hour, and is likely to continue throughout the night in place of what was forecast to be plain rain.
I will not make any adjustments to the probabilities at this late hour, but the presence of ice opposed to wet snow or rain does notably increase the likelihood of a delay or cancellation.


5:20PM Update:
Rain will overspread the region around 7PM.
Rain will begin to mix with snow around midnight.

The higher elevations of the district (out toward Woodstock) should see a changeover to mainly snow after midnight. Those areas could see 2 to 3 inches of snow before changing back to rain around 8 or 9AM.

In and around Kingston, however, we may never change over to all snow. And it is very possible that we will not see any accumulation.

Overall, it seems like most of the district will see no more than an inch of wet snow, the exception being the Woodstock area.


10AM Update:

A storm will impact us tonight.
The region will be flirting with the freezing mark during this storm.
The result will be mainly rain, with a period of snow possible.

This will likely be one of those storms where some parts of the district receive up to 2 or 3 inches, while others receive barely any snow accumulation.
Today

Sunny.
Clouds increasing during the afternoon.
High of 42.

Tonight

Rain developing around midnight.
Rain mixing with snow after midnight.
A period of just snow is possible around sunrise.

Snow accumulations are forecast to be 1 to 2 inches in Kingston, but anything from zero to 3 inches is possible throughout the entire district.

Low 32.

Wednesday

Rain.
Any morning snow will transition to rain by 8 or 9AM.

High 41.
