A disturbance from the Southern Plains States is forecast to track northeast towards the Great Lakes. Latest indications suggest this low will follow a path across Central Ohio Saturday to Central New York State by Sunday morning.

Snow ahead of this disturbance is expected to reach Southwestern Ontario tonight then spread northeast on Saturday. Current indications suggest a 10 to 15 cm snowfall event for many areas by Saturday night.

There is some potential for locally higher amounts of snow from this system in areas around the west end of Lake Ontario, as cold easterly winds pick up extra moisture from the relatively mild waters of the lake. Therefore a winter storm watch has been issued for these regions.

In addition, strong and gusty easterly winds will develop with the snow with reduced visibilities in snow and blowing snow.

Motorists should be prepared for poor winter driving conditions after the snow arrives by Saturday.

Please refer to your local public forecast for further details on expected snowfall amounts. Listen for updated watches and warnings.
