Special Weather Statement For Snowfall In Effect

With a winter storm system coming through, Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement. This could last for a few days and see a fair accumulation of snow.

The Statement reads:

Multi-day snowfall event expected today into Wednesday.

Total snowfall amounts of 10 to 20 cm are possible.

Precipitation is expected to begin this morning as rain or snow and change to snow this evening. Snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are possible by Tuesday morning.

Additional snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are a possibility Tuesday through Wednesday,

Motorists should be prepared for winter driving conditions.

This snowfall is a result of a strengthening low pressure system expected to move through eastern Ontario into Quebec Tuesday into Wednesday.

Precipitation associated with this low pressure system is expected to move east of the area by Wednesday.

This currently doesn’t look like it will extend down to the Lake from Simcoe to Niagara, or Hamilton, though it does seem likely to hit Brant County and regions North and West.

It is, however, a still developing situation and is subject to change.
