It’s no Snowmageddon, but southwestern Ontario and the Golden Horseshoe are in line for a snowy winter night.
Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning for several regions of southern Ontario Saturday evening, predicting bursts of heavy snow and low visibility from London through Kitchener and into the York-Durham regions.
Accumulations of up to 15 cm are expected in those areas.
The weather agency has already noted near-whiteout conditions on web cameras along the Hwy 401-Hwy 403 corridor and is warning of dangerous driving conditions.
The GTA will see less of the white stuff but can still expect about 5 cm, according to Environment Canada. The temperature in the city will hit a low of minus 7C and the snow is expected to end late Saturday evening.
