Winter Storm Warning

Issued at 10:44 Saturday 19 January 2019
Summary

Winter storm conditions expected this evening into Sunday.

Snow will advance into Eastern Ontario today and become heavier this evening. The snow will taper off from west to east on Sunday.

The latest analysis is suggesting higher snowfall amounts than originally anticipated. Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are looking increasingly likely, particularly for regions close to the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario.

In addition, northeast winds gusting to 60 km/h will develop this evening and generate widespread blowing snow along with cold wind chill values near minus 30.

###

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

An arctic air mass is forecast to begin to move into Southern Ontario today. Wind chill values are expected to fall to close to minus 35 overnight tonight, and overnight Sunday. Wind chill values overnight Monday are expected to be close to minus 30.

Conditions will improve by Tuesday when a milder airmass moves in.

###

Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.
