I’m making a quick trip to Toronto tomorrow, so I thought I’d check the weather forecast. That’s when I noticed a decidedly unpleasant symbol on the current conditions for Ottawa.
A quick check of the current METAR for the airport showed:
METAR CYOW 140300Z 30011G16KT 8SM -SN BKN013 OVC020 02/00 A2964 RMK
Fortunately, the TAF suggests it’s only going to do this for an hour or so:
TAF CYOW 140241Z 1403/1424 31012G22KT P6SM -RA SCT012 OVC025 TEMPO 1403/1404 21/2SM -SHSNRA OVC012
