Late afternoon Tuesday, Environment Canada upgraded its winter storm warning to “blizzard” for much of southern Ontario. Hamilton could end up with the largest accumulation it’s seen in four years.
Starting around noon Tuesday, between 30 and 45 centimetres (12-18 inches) of snow is expected to be dumped on Hamilton, Burlington, Haldimand, Norfolk, Brant and Niagara. Strong, gusty winds could also develop, causing whiteouts and near blizzard conditions.
By the time the severe storm system has made its way through 29 American states and four Canadian provinces, it will have affected 100 million people in North America,
The cause of the storm, is a low pressure system developing over the southern states: cold air from the north will combine with “warm sopping moist air from the south.”
