Prepare yourselves, Ontario to Newfoundland. The next blast of winter weather is upon us.

Two areas of low pressure will be sliding into the area Sunday through Tuesday, accompanied with gusty winds and accumulating snowfall. Light snow will affect southwestern Ontario, with accumulations of less than 5 cm. 

"Snow will begin Sunday night, thus hampering the Monday morning commute around Southern Ontario, including the GTA," says Brian Dillon, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. "Roadways will be slick and messy." 

Meanwhile, 5 to 10 cm of snow is expected in eastern Ontario, including the Ottawa area, through the day on Monday.

Through Monday evening, the snow will change to rain overnight in Nova Scotia, staying as snow in New Brunswick. By the next morning, the system will whip the winds in the Gulf of St. Lawrence up to 100 km/h. 

In Newfoundland, the snow starts Monday overnight, switching to light rain along the south coast and Avalon Peninsula early afternoon and leaving the island Tuesday evening.

That's also when the winds will begin to increase into the overnight, gusting up to 100 km/h.


TUNE IN: We'll be following this system for the whole weekend. Watch The Weather Network on TV for updates.
