Environment Canada has been tracking a weather system that will be coming through the area Today which will be bringing significant snow to some areas, there has been a Winter Travel Advisory issued for several areas of Southern Ontario; including Brantford/County of Brant, and a Winter Storm Warning issued for several areas to the east.
For Brantford and the County of Brant there is a Winter Weather Travel Advisory in effect for today into tonight.
Light snow will begin this morning and is expected to become heavy at times this afternoon and continue through the evening. Snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 cm are possible by the time the snow ends late tonight.
Travel will be impacted today due to accumulating snow, particularly during the afternoon commute.
This snowfall is due to a developing low pressure system which will track south of the lower Great Lakes on today.
But if you go just a bit to the east toward Hamilton it becomes a Winter Storm Warning;
Hazardous winter conditions are expected.
Snowfall with total amounts of 25 to 30 cm is expected.
Light snow will move into the region early this morning and becomes heavy at times this afternoon and evening. Gusty northeast winds off of Lake Ontario combined with higher terrain of the Niagara escarpment will lead to snowfall enhancement locally from near Hamilton eastward across northern Niagara. These areas could see total snowfall amounts of 25 to 30 cm by early Tuesday morning.
Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
Environment Canada will continue to monitor the situation. But if you encounter heavy snow during your drive please adjust your driving to the conditions and be safe on the roads. If you normally would travel toward Hamilton or the Niagara Region and would be there until late this afternoon or into the evening; you may want to reconsider your plans.
