Snow storm Mississauga and Brampton

A winter storm is in the forecast for this week.

According to Environment Canada, a special weather statement is in effect for:

  • Mississauga
  • Brampton
  • Hamilton
  • Burlington
  • Oakville
  • Caledon
  • Halton Hills
  • Milton

Environment Canada says an approaching Colorado low is expected to bring a winter storm to much of southern Ontario. A wintry mix of snow and ice pellets is expected across the area, and precipitation may fall heavily, leading to hazardous winter travel conditions.

It will start Wednesday night (Feb. 22) and persist into Thursday (Feb. 23).

Environment Canada says there’s some uncertainty about the exact location, timing, and snow and ice pellet accumulations. Precipitation may mix with freezing rain in some areas.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow and ice pellets.
