Wayne Sheridan reports: Snowy weather has returned to southern Ontario today but it will be short lived. While the snow will get many people into the festive mood, driving will be hazardous on Thursday. Don’t worry, warmer temperatures return by the weekend. This will cause snow to melt and raise river and creek level quickly and reduce visibility for fishermen. When fishing on the weekend, watch for rising water levels.
