Special weather statement in effect for:

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

Snow is expected to develop tonight over southwestern Ontario and move eastward to reach the Greater Toronto Area early Tuesday morning. Snowfall accumulations near 10 cm are likely before the snow changes to rain. Snow will change to rain late in the morning in southwestern Ontario, and late in the afternoon in the Greater Toronto Area.

There may be a significant impact to the Tuesday morning commute and possibly the afternoon one as well for regions where the change to rain occurs later.

Motorists should plan for extra time to reach their destination later tonight and Tuesday.

The weather system responsible is a Colorado low that will affect much of the province.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.cpio-tempetes-ospc-storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
