Winter Storm Warning

Issued at 04:48 Tuesday 01 March 2016

Hazardous winter conditions are expected. Snow, heavy at times, and blowing snow is expected . The snow will begin later this morning and intensify into the evening with the heaviest amounts of snow forecast for tonight. Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are likely by Wednesday morning. Strong northeasterly winds will also produce blowing snow especially in exposed areas due to gusts of 70 kilometres per hour. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports to #ONStorm.


Our Crews will be going out this morning through the afternoon, all night and most of the day tomorrow trying to keep your properties open and to clear the snow from this storm as quickly as possible.

If possible, stay indoors this evening. If you have to be on the roads tonight, please give yourself lots of extra time and drive carefully.
