Southern Ontario digs out after storm

Winter storm and snow squall watches were issued across the rest of southern Ontario on Monday. "Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve".

The AM980-Gerrie Electric Storm Centre is monitoring the system with flurries expected to begin sometime Tuesday morning, gradually intensifying as the day rolls on.

On top of the snow, strong northeasterly winds will gust between 25 and 35 miles per hour at times, officials warned.

The Hamilton Wentworth District School Board cancelled both its classes and buses but students at Catholic schools in the city were expected to show up to class. "There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas". The meteorological winter (December through February) precipitation total (rain plus snow converted to liquid) rose to 4.83 inches, 0.41 inches above normal.

The frigid windchill is expected to die down later Tuesday and with that, some moisture and then some milder conditions. As the blowing and heavy snow from the storm tapers off on Wednesday morning, we'll be March-ing into a weekend reaching over 1 C by Saturday.
