Special weather statements have been issued by Environment Canada for communities across Eastern Ontario.
Snow associated with a storm system is expected to move into portions of southern Ontario on Tuesday. The snow may be heavy at times before changing to rain later in the day.
Snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are possible for the Quinte area, and up to 15 cm in Brockville. Environment Canada says amounts may be significantly lower closer to Lake Ontario where snow may change to rain sooner. Rainfall amounts of 20 to 40 mm are possible near Lake Ontario.
Difficult travel conditions will be likely once the snow arrives. At this point, it appears that the heaviest snow will arrive after the morning commute, but that the afternoon commute could be significantly impacted.
In areas near Lake Ontario, if the snow changes to rain earlier, rainfall amounts of 20 to 40 mm appear possible.
Winter weather travel advisories may be issued for some regions as this event draws nearer.
