335 AM EST Fri Dec 9 2022 SYNOPSIS... Spotty lake effect sprinkles and flurries south of Lake Ontario will gradually shift west and diminish overnight. Otherwise, dry weather will prevail through Saturday as strong Canadian high pressure builds east across Ontario and Quebec. Weak low pressure pushing across the Great Lakes will then spread a mix of rain and wet snow across the region Saturday night and Sunday, with the majority of any snow accumulation expected to be across the higher terrain.
