The latest indications suggest that snow will move into southwestern Ontario and the Golden Horseshoe on Wednesday morning and spread northeastward reaching the Quebec border by late Wednesday afternoon.

While there remains much uncertainty about the track of this low, total snowfall amounts of 10 to 25 cm are possible by Thursday morning.

Motorists should be prepared for poor winter driving conditions due to low visibility in heavy snow and quickly accumulating snow.
