A Special Weather Statement from Environment Canada is predicting a winter storm with snow, ice pellets, freezing rain, and strong winds Tuesday and Tuesday night. Snow will mix with - or change to ice pellets later Tuesday morning, and to freezing rain Tuesday afternoon.

Environment Canada says this weather system may have a significant impact on travel.

The snow will kick off around midnight, starting in the more southern communities and working its way north.

The white stuff is expected to arrive on Tuesday morning.

The city will see a small taste of precipitation tonight, with two centimetres of snow expected overnight. Snow will taper off to flurries on Wednesday.

The mixed precipitation could make for hard driving conditions on Wednesday, especially as high winds cause visibility issues in blowing snow.

Stormi also posed with her cousins True and Kourtney's son, Mason Disick, 9, while cuddling up to some life-size stuffed animals. At the party, Kylie, Kim, Kris and Khloe were all together (with their children) to celebrate the toddler's birthday.

After the snow pushes through area, the city and surrounding suburbs could see a few rounds of freezing drizzle before the start of the work week, the weather services said in a hazardous weather outlook.

Northern suburbs and northwestern suburbs stand the greatest chance of getting maybe 1 to 2 inches of snow.

8 p.m. Residents of the Pacific Northwest took to neighbourhood hills with skis, sleds or even just laundry baskets Saturday to celebrate an unusual dump of snow in a region more accustomed to winter rain.

- Another round of snow, sleet and freezing rain is on the way.

"And then temperatures will rise above the freezing mark, changing that freezing rain over to rain in the afternoon".
