It looks like March will indeed come in like a lion (which is exceptionally disappointing after the unusual spring weather we’ve been having).
Environment Canada says a special weather statement is in effect for Burlington, Oakville, Halton Hills and Milton due to the potential of heavy snow on Thursday, March 1.
“Rain is expected to develop Thursday as a strong low pressure system from Texas approaches the Great Lakes area. The rain will likely change to snow late in the day or Thursday evening as colder air moves into the region,” the environment agency says. “There is still considerable uncertainty regarding the exact evolution of this strong Texas low.”
Environment Canada says up to 15 cm of snow could hit the region late Thursday and persist into Friday morning. In addition, strong and gusty northeast winds of up to 60 km/h may result in areas of blowing snow and poor visibility.

Naturally, this late winter snowfall may have a significant impact on the commute to work on Friday morning. Fortunately, conditions should improve throughout the day.
