Significant Snowfall in the Forecast for Halton
If you live in Oakville or Burlington, you should prepare for snow.
Environment Canada recently issued a special weather statement for Burlington and Oakville, warning residents that “significant snowfall is possible.”
The weather agency says localized pockets of heavy flurries may affect areas near the west end of Lake Ontario this morning and into the afternoon due to increasing northeast winds.
Several centimetres of snow along with brief periods of low visibility are likely.
It doesn’t end there.
Environment Canada says more widespread snow associated with a passing low pressure system is expected to move into the region early this evening and end later Monday morning.
Snowfall amounts are generally expected to be in the 5 to 10 cm range. However, for areas stretching from Hamilton towards Grimsby, there is a possibility that amounts may exceed 15 cm. The area is being monitored for a potential snowfall warning.
Travel may be hazardous at times today and especially tonight into Monday morning.
