Sharp cold front moving through Southern Ontario today then
Snow squalls beginning this evening.
An Arctic cold front will sweep through Southern Ontario today.
The front will reach the Bruce Peninsula and Algonquin region late
this morning, then the Windsor and the Greater Toronto area late this
afternoon and finally the Niagara and Ottawa areas early this
evening. A band of showers with the front is expected to change to
flurries as brisk northwesterly winds cause temperatures to fall
rapidly behind the cold front. This will likely result in reductions
to visibility and slippery road conditions.
Behind the front, the cold northwesterly flow over the relatively
warm waters of the Great Lakes is expected to create favourable
conditions for the formation of snow squalls southeast of Lake Huron
and Georgian Bay this evening.
A snow squall watch has been issued for areas expected to receive
local snowfall amounts of 10 cm by Tuesday morning, although higher
amounts will be possible under the heaviest bands. In addition,
motorists should expect winter driving conditions through Tuesday.
Environment Canada meteorologists will continue to monitor this
developing situation closely.
