Snowfall warning in effect for much of the province

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for much of the province.

Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are expected in Durham-York, Kawartha Lakes and parts of Simcoe County.

“Two rounds of snow are expected today into Tuesday morning across portions of southern Ontario. The first one is expected this morning into early this afternoon with 5 cm of snow possible,” the warning reads.

“The snow may become light during the afternoon, however another round of heavier snow will move in this evening and persist into Tuesday morning. An additional 15 to 20 cm is likely.”

Motorists are encouraged to exercise caution.

“Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.”
