Special weather statement issued for Christmas

Snow forecast through Sunday night

It looks like Prince County will get the brunt of the Christmas Day storm.

Residents in most of southern Ontario will see a white Christmas as a low-pressure system is expected to bring five to 10 centimetres of snow by Monday morning, according to Environment Canada. At least 2-4 cm of snow is expected to accumulate before Christmas Day.

Snowfall amounts will diminish gradually as the system moves south.

Visibility may be limited and travel may become hard.

Snowfall accumulations exceeding 10 cm are possible, particularly for inland areas and over higher terrain, Environment Canada warned. Drivers may have sudden reduced visibility during heavy snowfall.

Environment Canada forecasts flurries to begin falling during the day Sunday across Vancouver Island.

This intense low will produce large waves and storm surge, which will give higher than normal water levels and rough pounding surf for the north facing shorelines of the Island Monday night.

A cold warning has also been issued by the Halton Region Health Department starting Christmas Eve. It says wind conditions from December 25 at 12 p.m. until December 26 at 6 a.m., may result in traffic restrictions on the Confederation Bridge.
