If you’re a fan of the fluffy white stuff, get ready to celebrate — we’re getting our first (significant) snow of the season in southern Ontario, including Brampton, Hamilton and the Halton Region.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for snowfall expected throughout the day on Sunday.
Snow is expected to begin falling Sunday morning, with 5 to 10 cm of snow possible before the snow tapers off overnight.
“An exception will be areas near Lake Ontario where snow will be very wet. This should preclude significant accumulations in areas near the lake,” Environment Canada says.
Travel is expected to be impacted due to the snowfall, and residents should be prepared for winter weather driving conditions.
