Texas Low Brings Winter Storm Wed, Feb 26th 2020

There is a Winter Storm blowing through Southern Ontario Today which will hit differently depending on where you are. For the Brantford area Environment Canada has a Special Weather Statement in effect warning of potential heavy snow.

It reads;

Heavy snow likely this afternoon into tonight.

Snow will continue this morning before becoming heavy this afternoon. Heavy snow will continue through this afternoon and evening before tapering to flurries overnight.

Total snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm are possible by Thursday morning.

Motorists should be prepared for poor winter driving conditions due to low visibilities in heavy snow and quickly accumulating snow.

You can also expect wind gusts picking up Overnight Tonight and continuing through Thursday.

However if you move further North toward Guelph or East toward Burlington the statement turns into a Winter Storm Warning;

Snowfall with total amounts of about 15 cm is expected.

Snow will continue today before becoming heavy this afternoon. Heavy snow will continue through this evening before tapering to flurries overnight.

Total snowfall amounts of 15 cm are expected by Thursday morning.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.

If you are travelling Today or if the snow picked up close to home be prepared to adjust your driving to the conditions or end your trip early as the storm picks up over the course of the day.
