Snowfall warning in effect for:
Burlington – Oakville
Halton Hills – Milton
Mississauga – Brampton
A significant snowfall of 15 cm is expected.
Snow has gradually become heavier across Southern Ontario this afternoon. The snow is expected to intensify further into the evening hours and continue rather heavy at times until well after midnight. It is forecast to become lighter towards morning before tapering off near dawn around the Golden Horseshoe and a little later in the morning farther east.
Commuters can expect a slow go of it on Monday morning as roads are expected to be snow-covered or slushy and potentially slippery. The only exception may be right along the Lake Ontario shoreline where roads may be wet with temperatures slightly above the freezing mark.
This snowfall is attributed to a developing low pressure area which is over Missouri late this afternoon and is tapping moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. It will track across the Great Lakes later tonight before heading into New England on Monday.
Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.
Snowfall warnings are issued when significant snowfall is expected.
