Weather AdvisoryIssued at 04:03 Tuesday 19 January 2021
Winter Weather Travel Advisory in effect for this afternoon and tonight.
Cold northwesterly winds will generate lake effect snow squalls beginning this afternoon and could persist into Wednesday morning. These snow squall bands will continuously shift over the region which will limit the snowfall amount over a given location. A total snowfall accumulation of 10 to 15 cm is expected by Wednesday midday.
Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to heavy snow and blowing snow. Difficult winter travel conditions are expected.
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.
