NIAGARA | When will the storm hit, and how much snow are we getting?

Kids across Niagara are keeping their fingers crossed for a snow day tomorrow, and it looks like they may get their wish.

Environment Canada has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the entire Niagara Region with 15-25 cm of snow on the way.

Geoff Coulson tells CKTB the system will move into Niagara as rain with warm temperatures this evening, but the temperature will quickly fall and the rain will turn to snow.

He says while some areas to the south will get rain and snow earlier, most of the region will start to see flurries after 7pm tonight.

Coulson says this is a significant weather event with a consistent snowfall overnight.

He says heavier snow will hit at around 9-12 pm tonight and will start to calm by around 4-6am.

He says winds reaching 60 kilometres an hour will also whip snow around causing near zero visibility.

Snow is expected to end Friday morning between 9-10am.

Coulson says the top of the escarpment in Niagara, and the shore of Lake Erie may get up to 30 cm.
