Hamilton, Niagara under weather advisory, as snow moves in


Published January 24, 2022 at 7:37 pm

A winter weather travel advisory was issued for Hamilton and Niagara Region early on Monday evening.

Environment Canada says that the snow that was falling at various times Monday (Jan. 24) could reach a total accumulation of 5 to 10 centimentres. That could result in reduced visibility.

“Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions and adjust travel plans accordingly,” the weather agency said. “Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.”

The snow was expected to dissipate from west to east. The snow was falling mostly across southwest Ontario, from London, through southern counties such as Brant, Oxford, Norfolk and Haldimand, and in Niagara.
