A travel advisory has been issued by Environment Canada, which is urging residents to be prepared for winter weather driving conditions in Brampton, Hamilton and Halton.
The 7-14 cm of snow expected for today (and quickly accumulating snow rates at times) are causing slippery road conditions and low visibility at times.
The advisory is in effect now through tonight at midnight.
“Snow is beginning to spread across the region this morning and will continue to fall through this evening. Snowfall accumulation will generally increase the further one is from Lake Ontario,” Environment Canada reports.
“Areas near Lake Ontario may switch over to ice pellets and/or rainfall late this afternoon or evening, creating sloppy conditions.”
