BROCKVILLE – Environment Canada issued a winter storm warning for Leeds-Grenville late Monday night as a Nor’easter moves into Ontario.
Snow is expected to start overnight and into Tuesday morning and with wind topping 50 kilometers an hour, it will cause blowing snow and reduced visibility on the roads.
The weather agency says travel conditions are expected to be “quite hazardous” Tuesday and into Wednesday morning.
A winter storm warning is issued when 25 centimeters of snow (9.8 inches) is expected within a 24 hour period.
It’s the first winter storm warning issued for the region this winter season.
