The Special Weather Statement from Environment Canada has increased to a WINTER STORM WATCH. Light snow and freezing drizzle are expected in the early morning hours before heavier snow and hits in time for the morning commute.
Environment Canada’s Winter Storm Watch reads…
‘A low pressure area emerging from Texas is expected to intensify into a major winter storm as it tracks northeast towards the Great
Lakes on Wednesday. Latest indications suggest the moisture laden Texas low will track northeastward just south of Lakes Erie and Ontario Wednesday night and Thursday.
Snow, heavy at times, is expected to spread northward over eastern Ontario. Snowfall amounts in the 15 to 25 cm range are expected in areas near Georgian Bay, while eastern Ontario will see 5 to 10 cm of snow and ice pellets before the precipitation changes to freezing rain Wednesday evening.
Travelling conditions are expected to deteriorate quickly shortly after the snow arrives on Wednesday. Brisk east to northeast winds will also result in local blowing and drifting snow, contributing to hazardous travelling conditions. Freezing rain will create icy conditions in eastern Ontario.
Environment Canada is closely monitoring this situation, and this winter storm watch may eventually be upgraded to warnings as this event draws closer.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to email@example.com or tweet reports to #ONStorm.’
