Published February 19, 2022 at 12:04 pm
A winter weather advisory has been issued for much of the region, including Mississauga, Brampton, Burlington, Oakville and Milton.
Rapid snowfall amounts of 2 to 4 cm are expected, with the snow being blown around by strong westerly winds gusting up to 70 km/h.
Visibility is heavily reduced due to the blowing snow.
The cause of the harsh weather is a sharp cold front tracking over southern Ontario, bringing areas of heavy snow and blowing snow that will continue until later in the afternoon.
Residents should be aware of quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions, and consider postponing any non-essential travel.
