Special Weather Statement

Winter is establishing a firm grip on Southern Ontario with a burst of snow possible later today, followed by a widespread accumulating snowfall Monday into Monday night.

An Arctic cold front will cross Southern Ontario late this afternoon into this evening. It will likely be accompanied by a brief burst of heavier snow with reduced visibilities affecting travel. A coating of a couple of centimetres in a short timeframe is possible in some areas.

On Monday and Monday night, a general snowfall of 5 to 10 cm appears likely as a low pressure area moves across Southern Ontario. Although localized slightly higher amounts are possible, snowfall warnings are not expected (where at least 15 cm would have to fall within 12 hours).

Poor winter driving conditions are likely.
