Translation: Brace yourself, this is not going to be pretty.

We’ve got inbound freezing drizzle (FZDZ), snow pellets (SNPL) and freezing rain (FZRA). Whee.

In fact, it looks like there’s already some sort of precipitation happening because there’s stuff hitting my window. CBC is reporting that many school buses in the more rural areas of Ottawa are cancelled.

    Hey, at least it’s *light* freezing drizzle.

    I suppose that’s true, however talking to people back in Ottawa (I took the train to Toronto this afternoon), I gather they are now expecting as much as 50mm of FZRA.
