Alerts for: Niagara

Watches

7:20 PM EST Sunday 27 December 2015
Winter storm watch in effect for:

  • Niagara Falls – Welland – Southern Niagara Region
  • St. Catharines – Grimsby – Northern Niagara Region

A storm from Texas will cause snow, ice pellets, and blowing snow to develop Monday afternoon then change quickly to freezing rain by Monday evening. The freezing rain may persist several hours before changing to rain overnight. Strong easterly winds gusting to 70 to 80 km/h are also expected Monday evening.

Poor travel conditions will develop Monday afternoon and continue into Monday night. The freezing rain combined with the wind could give the potential for power outages Monday evening.

Conditions will improve early Tuesday.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
