Snow is expected to arrive Tuesday morning.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather warning statement for the Halton Region.

On Tuesday morning, a winter storm with significant snow, freezing rain, and strong winds is expected to move into our area.

Issued just before 6 a.m. Sunday, the statement advised of a combination of freezing rain, snow, and ice pellets moving through Windsor and Essex County starting early Monday.

Some areas received more than a foot of snow, and meteorologists say more is on the way early next week.

A low pressure system is now brewing over the southern US, which may intensify into a winter storm as it moves over Southern Ontario on Tuesday, the agency said. This will be an event that will impact commute times and travel for children getting home from school, rush hour traffic getting home from work, and 2nd and 3rd-shifters going to and from work Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Strong and gusty easterly winds may cause low visibility in blowing snow before the snow changes over to freezing precipitation.

We're expecting at least an inch of snow overnight before the precipitation freezes up.

How much is possible in an extreme case?

It's possible, but the weather service predicts that even in a very light snowfall, Boston should expect to get an inch, and communities in Central and Western Massachusetts could get 2-3. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the entire state for a period of snow, followed by a change to wintry mix and rain.
