Winter Storm to Impact Ontario

A winter storm warning was issued for southern Ontario for a snow and ice system that could cause "widespread" power outages in some areas.

According to Environment Canada, the storm is expected to hit Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Some areas of southern Ontario will be affected primarily by snow, while others will be affected by an ice storm.

"A low pressure system approaching from Colorado is expected to bring a winter storm to much of southern Ontario," Environment Canada said Monday.

According to the weather agency, snow and ice pellets are expected across the area, and precipitation "may fall heavily at times, leading to hazardous conditions for winter travel."

Due to uncertainty about the exact timing and location of the storm, Environment Canada has not released how much snow is expected to fall. However it is expected to affect Southern Ontario between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning.

Areas west of Toronto, such as Hamilton, London and Niagara, are being warned about the potential for "significant ice accumulation."

"Freezing rain warnings are expected to be issued as the event approaches," Environment Canada said. "Surfaces such as highways, roads, sidewalks and parking lots will become icy, slippery and extremely hazardous. Widespread and widespread power outages are possible."

According to The Weather Network, up to 15 centimeters of snow is possible Thursday morning in parts of the Greater Toronto Area.

Toronto, Hamilton, York Region, Durham Region, Durham Region, Halton Region, Peel Region, Kingston, London, Niagara, Waterloo and Windsor are under special weather statements.
