With a winter storm on its way, Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for much of the province.
Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are possible from Monday to Wednesday (Nov. 30 to Dec. 2) in Durham and York regions, as well as Kawartha Lakes and parts of Simcoe County.
“Precipitation is expected to begin this morning as rain or snow and change to snow this evening. Snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are possible by Tuesday morning. Additional snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm are a possibility Tuesday through Wednesday,” it reads.
“Motorists should be prepared for winter driving conditions. This snowfall is a result of a strengthening low pressure system expected to move through eastern Ontario into Quebec Tuesday into Wednesday. Precipitation associated with this low pressure system is expected to move east of the area by Wednesday night.”
