BROCKVILLE – March is coming in like a lion as some areas of Leeds-Grenville will get a heavy dumping of snow tonight (Tuesday).

Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning for Brockville, Prescott, Merrickville-Wolford, Kemptville, Westport and Charleston Lake this morning.

Snowfall around 15 centimeters (6 inches) is expected to start later this afternoon and continue through the night, and it will come down heavy at times.

The wind is also expected to kick up to 50-60 kilometers an hour, causing blowing snow in many areas.

Meanwhile, Gananoque and Mallorytown are under a winter storm watch as areas closer to the northeast shore of Lake Ontario and shore of the St. Lawrence River are expected to see a mix of freezing rain and ice pellets.

That will mean lesser snowfall amounts of 5-10 centimeters (2-4 inches).

But meteorologists warn the advisory may change depending on how the storm tracks into Leeds-Grenville.
