Winter Storm WarningIssued at 13:25 Wednesday 01 March 2017
Hazardous winter conditions are expected.
March comes in like a white lion, as a winter storm affects the region.
A strong Colorado low will move across Southern Ontario today. Strong northerly winds have set in with much colder Arctic air creating a wintery day across portions of Northeastern Ontario. Snow, at times heavy, will continue throughout the afternoon into the evening before beginning to taper off later tonight.
Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 centimetres are expected by Thursday morning, with locally higher amounts to 30 cm possible in one or two locales.
Strong northerly winds gusting up to 60 or 70 km/h is also whipping up the freshly fallen snow resulting in frequent blowing snow in exposed areas.
Hazardous winter driving conditions are expected, and travel is not recommended. Travel plans should be adjusted appropriately.
Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.
Winter storm warnings are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.
