Say it ain’t snow: Winter weather set to return to southern Ontario

Warmer temperatures may lull Ontarians into a sense of spring, but winter is planning to make a frosty return Wednesday.

Much of southern Ontario is being warned about a winter storm, which could bring up to 15 cm of snow in some parts, Environment Canada said in a special weather statement.

The Niagara region, Kingston, Cornwall and Brockville are under a winter storm warning and could see 25 cm of snow by Wednesday night.

A low-pressure system coming up from Kansas is to blame. It is expected to generate snow and blowing snow, although snowfall accumulations "will depend on the exact track of this system."

The storm will move east, hitting southern Quebec before bringing mixed precipitation to most of Atlantic Canada on Thursday.

The temperatures were expected to hit 7C in southern Ontario Wednesday, but that will drop to -10 C on Wednesday. It will remain cold Thursday, but the forecast calls for above-freezing temperatures on Friday and Saturday.
