Environment Canada has issued a snow storm warning for communities in our listening area.
The warning is for Oakville, Burlington and Hamilton for Saturday.
A major snowfall is expected to hit the GTA beginning tomorrow and continuing into Sunday – with 8 to 15 centimetres expected to hit Toronto by Saturday night along with northeast winds and blowing snow.
But for areas around the west end of Lake Ontario including Hamilton and Burlington, cold easterly winds will pick up extra moisture from the relatively mild waters of the lake. Locally higher amounts of 15 to 25 centimetres are possible.Strong and gusty easterly winds will develop ahead of this system with reduced visibilities in snow and blowing snow. Motorists should be prepared for poor winter driving conditions.
