“A total snowfall of 10 to 15 cm is expected before the snow tapers off this evening. Over Extreme Eastern Ontario, a snowfall warning has been issued where up to 20 centimetres are expected. Motorists should expect driving conditions to deteriorate once the precipitation arrives. Hazardous winter driving conditions are expected as untreated roads may become slippery and snow covered, and visibility in areas of heavier snow may be quite low.
