Between two and five millimeters of snow could fall in these locations.

However, due to easterly winds from Lake Ontario, Environment Canada predicts that some locations could see more snowfall accumulation.

Because this is many cities’ first snowfall of the season, Environment Canada advises drivers to be cautious as roads may become icy.

“If visibility is poor when driving, put on your lights and keep a safe following distance.” According to the warning, highways, roads, sidewalks, and parking lots may turn icy and dangerous.
