Winter weather advisory issued for snowy Monday, messy commute expected


Environment Canada said it will continue to monitor the situation. Heaviest amounts are forecast for this afternoon and early evening, the national weather agency says.

Environment Canada is warning Hamilton, Burlington and the Niagara region to brace for a "significant snowfall" Monday. Cities like Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, Niagara Falls and St. Catharines could pick up 15 to 25 cm of snow, due to gusty northwest winds off Lake Ontario.

Between 10 and 20 centimetres will fall before the heavy snow ends this afternoon.

Snow accumulations could reach 15 cm by Monday night in those areas.

"This snowfall is due to a developing low pressure system which will track south of the lower Great Lakes on today", Environment Canada said Monday morning. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.

The snow will likely taper off by Tuesday but colder temperatures will settle in.

Around 11:30 a.m., city officials said that salt trucks were heading to Toronto's expressways and that "spot salting" had started on main roads, hills and bridges. "If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop".
