Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Niagara Falls – Welland – Southern Niagara Region
  • St. Catharines – Grimsby – Northern Niagara Region

Significant snowfall for parts of Southern Ontario.

A low pressure system near Cape Cod will slowly track north to New England Thursday. An area of snow associated with this low is already affecting Eastern Ontario and is forecast to continue spreading north and west today. The snow is forecast to begin over Central Ontario and the Golden Horseshoe this evening and move into Southwestern Ontario early Thursday morning.

General snowfall totals are expected to approach 10 cm over most of the area. However, higher totals of near 15 cm will be likely along a swath extending from Kingston to the National Capital Region, which borders regions under the snowfall warning. Amounts of 10 to 15 cm will also be possible over the Niagara Peninsula as well as near and northeast of Georgian Bay. Snowfall warnings may be required for some of the regions near Georgian Bay.

In addition, gusty northerly winds accompanying the system could reduce visibilities locally at times in snow and blowing snow.

The snow is forecast to taper off overnight for Eastern Ontario, Thursday morning for the Golden Horseshoe and later Thursday or Thursday night for central and Southwestern Ontario.

Motorists should be prepared for a return to winter driving conditions as the snow moves in. Untreated roads may become snow covered and slippery, and visibility may be reduced at times in areas of snow and local blowing snow.
