Up to 15cm of snow coming to cities and towns in southern Ontario

Environment and Climate Change Canada has upgraded the statement to a snowfall warning for southern Ontario.

There will be a significant snowfall today and tonight, which might amount to the most snowfall in some parts of the season.

The snowfall warning is in effect in:

  • Mississauga
  • Brampton
  • Toronto
  • Hamilton
  • Halton Region
  • Durham Region
  • Niagara Region

Snowfall amounts to near 15 cm. Peak snowfall rates of two cm per hour are possible.

There will be reduced visibility in heavy snow.

Timing: Beginning this morning and ending tonight.

Discussion: Light snow is expected to begin this morning but should intensify late in the afternoon or evening. The snow will taper off from west to east late tonight.

This snow may have a significant impact on the evening commute in urban areas. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.
