A snow squall warning is in effect for Hamilton and Halton, while parts of Niagara are under a winter weather travel advisory.
Environment Canada says snow squalls are expected today, causing significantly reduced visibility.
Visibility will be near zero at times in snow and blowing snow, especially along the QEW between Burlington and Stoney Creek.
Snowfall amounts between ten and 15 centimetres are expected before the snow tapers off in the afternoon.
Snow Squall Warning in effect for this morning through to this afternoon – rapidly accumulating snow can make visibility difficult when traveling. As always, you can follow along on the #plowtracker and plan travel accordingly. Drive safe. Visit: https://t.co/xjWfhBNkTl #HamOnt
