Environment Canada predicts snowstorms are heading to southern Ontario

Snowstorms heading to southern Ontario

TORONTO — Many residents in southern Ontario will be treated to snow for the next couple of days.

A system is moving into the province and Environment Canada meteorologist Steve Knott says the snow will begin around Kitchener.

He says it will hit the Greater Toronto Area by about noon and is likely to spread as far east as Brockville by Monday night.

Knott predicts the snow will continue until Wednesday morning.

Fifteen to 25 cm of snow are expected in most areas, with up to 30 cm forecast for the Hamilton-Niagara corridor.

The Ontario forecast remains cold for the rest of this week, which is spring break for many Ontario schools.

“For the remainder of the week we’re going to stay quite a bit below normal as far as the temperatures go, which maybe some people are happy about when they’re on spring break, but I suspect maybe not,” Knott says.
