Next Storm Could Bring 40cm Of Snow

Get ready for what could be the biggest snowfall we’ve had this winter.

Environment Canada says a low pressure system that will sweep across Ontario Tuesday and Wednesday could bring the Ottawa Valley 40 centimetres of snow. 

The snow is expected to start late Tuesday morning or early Tuesday afternoon and then continue right through until Wednesday morning. 

It’s also expected we’ll see some strong winds during that time, with wind gusts from the east of up to 60 km/h, which could make traveling especially treacherous until the system moves out later on Wednesday.

The latest weather advisory, posted just before 5:00 a.m. on Monday, notes:

"Avoid travel if possible. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas. If you must travel, keep others informed of your schedule and destination and carry an emergency kit and mobile phone."
