A winter storm with a combination of 15 to 25 cm snow and ice pellets, possible freezing rain, and strong winds is expected today into tonight.

Snow at times heavy continues over the region. Strong easterly winds gusting near 70 km/h will result in sudden and significantly reduced visibility due to blowing snow. Stronger wind gusts near 80 km/h are also possible which will reduce visibility. There is also a risk of freezing rain later this afternoon.

Total snowfall and ice pellet amounts of 15 to 25 cm for Ontario and 25 to 40cm are possible by the time snow tapers to flurries on Wednesday.
