Strong storm impacting eastern half of Canada

A strong storm will bring a variety of weather to the eastern half of Canada over the next few days.


Southern Ontario and portions of northeastern Ontario will see snow and blowing snow through the day. These conditions are expected for much of southern Ontario where total snowfall amounts of 15 to 30 cm appear likely with the exception of areas north of Lake Erie and western Lake Ontario, where a few centimeters of snow is possible in the afternoon. In addition, strong northwest winds gusting up to 80 km/h will develop Saturday afternoon east of Lake Huron, creating blizzard-like conditions at times.

Areas near the northeastern shores of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario will see winds gusting to 100 or 110 km/h on Saturday afternoon.


The same storm will bring 15 to 25 centimetres of snow, strong winds and blowing snow over exposed areas of southern Quebec. Conditions will gradually improve during the evening.

Visibility will be suddenly reduced.

Sunday morning winds in southwestern Newfoundland will gust to 100 km/h except 130 km/h in the Wreckhouse area.
