A major Winter storm will affect the regions Wednesday night through Friday with heavy snow and blowing snow.

Snow accumulations may be in the 15 to a 25-centimetre range. Strong northeasterly winds with gusts to 60 km/h may reduce visibility at times.

The storm is due to a Colorado Low which will make its way into northwestern Ontario late Wednesday. The heaviest snow will end late Thursday, however blowing snow may persist through Friday afternoon.

Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. If you must travel, keep others informed of your schedule and destination and carry an emergency kit and mobile phone.

Winter storm watches are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.
