Special weather statement
A significant snowfall is expected Wednesday into Wednesday night.
Snow is expected to begin this evening before becoming heavy near midday Wednesday. Heavy snow will continue through Wednesday afternoon and evening before tapering to flurries Wednesday night.
There remains much uncertainty regarding the track of this low, but total snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm are possible by Thursday morning.
Motorists should be prepared for poor winter driving conditions due to low visibilities in heavy snow and quickly accumulating snow.
This snow is the result of a Texas Low that will track over Eastern Ontario Wednesday night.
