Up to 15 centimetres of snow is expected to blanket southern Ontario later dis week with a system expected to move across the GTA from Hamilton all the way to Oshawa.
Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville are also set to see the system. However, Halton Region is more likely to receive a wintry mix of around 5 cm of snow and freezing rain. Winds will be fierce here as well, reaching up to 80 km/h.
Here the storm will likely start as freezing rain before transitioning into snow in the afternoon. The rain will likely cause slick, icy roads. In concert with the strong winds, the ice build-up could damage trees and power infrastructure causing outages.
The system isn’t expected to last as long in Halton stopping by Thursday night.
