Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement predicting strong winds and snowfall for southern Ontario, cautioning Tuesday morning drivers to be wary.

In a special weather statement issued late Monday afternoon, the national weather agency said a fast-moving low pressure system will storm its way across the region from Lake Huron on Tuesday morning and into Quebec by Tuesday night.

Snowfall amounts of between 5-10 cm are expected in Southern Ontario, but along the shore of eastern Lake Ontario the amounts could be 10-15 cm.

The special weather statement is directed at these locations:

  • Guelph, Erin, Southern Wellington County.
  • Kitchener, Cambridge and the Region of Waterloo.

Environment Canada also predicted wind gusts of up to 70 km/h later in the day Tuesday, making visibility difficult due to heavy blowing snow.
