Central and eastern Canada should get their snow shovels ready for what's to come!A winter wallop is on the way for central and eastern Canada this weekend, with heavy snowfall amounts, up to 30 centimetres in some areas, along with gusty winds, blowing snow and bitter wind chills.
Southwestern Ontario will see the first effects of the storm, starting tonight. Unlike the snow squalls of the past few weeks, which were hit-and-miss for certain communities, this is expected to spread up to 15 centimetres of snow across a wide swath of the region by Saturday night. Strong, gusting winds are likely to kick up significant blowing snow across the entire area, creating hazardous driving conditions.
Winds blowing from the east ahead of the storm are expected to produce heavier bands of snow to the west of Lake Ontario, into the Hamilton, Burlington and Oakville areas. Environment Canada has issued Winter Storm warnings for both the City of Hamilton and Halton-Peel region as a result, with up to 25 centimetres of snow possible in some areas by Saturday night.
