Major Winter Storm Coming

Posted: 2019-12-27 08:25:11 By: hbr

Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Huntsville - Baysville

Environment Canada is warning of a major winter storm Sunday afternoon into Monday.

A low from the southwestern United States will bring a winter storm to eastern Ontario and portions of central Ontario Sunday afternoon into Monday.

Significant ice accumulation will be possible and widespread power outages are expected where freezing rain is the primary type of precipitation.

The Ottawa Valley will be on the boundary of freezing rain and heavy snowfall. As a result, the amount of icing versus snowfall is currently uncertain in the Ottawa Valley with potential for a major snowfall instead.

Travel is expected to rapidly deteriorate Sunday afternoon.
