Environment Canada has issued a Snowfall Warning for Windsor and Essex County in advance of tonight’s expected snowstorm.
A developing low pressure centre over Louisiana is forecast to track into Southern Ohio overnight. It is already tapping into moisture from the Gulf of Mexico which is spreading northwards in the form of a large area of snow just south of the Great Lakes. Snow is expected to arrive in Southwestern Ontario early this evening.
Environment Canada says the snow will fall rather heavily at times late tonight and Wednesday morning. This will significantly impact the morning commute as accumulations of 5cm to 10cm are expected to have fallen. Commuters should allow extra time due to accumulating snow and reduced visibility.
Total amounts of 10 to 15 cm are likely by the time the snow tapers off Wednesday when the centre of low pressure heads into New England.
