A Special Weather Statement Is In Effect North Of The GTA

A special weather statement is in effect north and west of the city. Parts of Waterloo-Wellington, Perry Sound-Muskoka, Grey-Bruce and Dufferin-Innisfil could get up to 10cm of snow by tomorrow night. This is from a low pressure system tracking from the Southern U.S. There is still some uncertainty with the forecast track but Environment Canada is warning you to be prepared for poor driving conditions. Here are the details:

Early season accumulating snowfall event Monday and Monday night. Latest indications suggest near 5 centimetres of snow will fall in most areas Monday. Additional snow Monday night will bring total snowfall amounts to near 10 centimetres by Tuesday morning. The snow affecting Ontario is a result of a low pressure system tracking from the Southern U.S. plains into Southern Ontario on Monday.

There is still some uncertainty with the forecast track of the low, which will affect total snowfall amounts across the region. Motorists should be prepared for poor winter driving conditions and allow extra time to reach their destination.
