Monster snow storm causes mayhem in Ontario, Canada

Winter Storm Warning_2

A blast of snow in southern Ontario has brought travel chaos to the province, with varying degrees of snow from a few centimetres, to more than 30 cm.
 
Eastern Ontario in particular has seen the heaviest hit from this system, with the city of Ottawa surpassing the 35 cm mark by mid-afternoon, with hours of snow still ahead.
 
“Snow, heavy at times, will taper off this evening. Total snowfall amounts of 30 to 40 cm are likely with this storm with amounts up to 50 cm possible,” a winter storm warning covering the National Capital Region reads. “Blowing snow may also reduce visibility to a few hundred metres at times this evening as northwesterly winds strengthen to 30 gusting to 50 km/h.”
The snow is coming from a low-pressure system currently tracking south of Canada through the northeastern United States. It sparked snowfall warnings in eastern Ontario and the Niagara region, along with heavy snow and freezing rain in Quebec and parts of Atlantic Canada.
 
Conditions are expected to gradually improve as the snow eases west to east late Tuesday afternoon into the evening hours. The evening commute will be impacted for areas from Cobourg to Cornwall and Ottawa however, as the system departs through the overnight hours. The Niagara region should also see a few more centimetres of snow heading into the evening.
The Greater Toronto area has mostly seen the worst of the system, and no more than a few flakes should fall in the evening.
 
For that part of the province, and some areas east of the city, the worst occurred in the morning hours, bringing traffic grinding to a halt and contributing to numerous collisions and some temporary road closures.
At 3:30 p.m., major highway impacts included some lane closures on the 401 at Guelph Line and the Fort Erie-bound QEW.
 
Several school bus services, particularly in eastern Ontario, were cancelled, and the Ottawa and Kingston airports reported some flight delays and cancellations, though most power utilities in the region were not reporting many outages as of mid-afternoon.
 
The system will continue to push east into the Maritimes Tuesday, where milder temperatures and heavy rain could result in localized flooding due to the significant snow already on the ground.
