Winter Weather Travel Advisory in effect for tonight.
Snowfall and rapidly falling temperatures could affect road conditions this evening and then strong winds develop.
A cold front is expected to track over Southern Ontario later today. As this front passes temperatures will drop and scattered rain showers will change to flurries in the evening. Temperatures will continue to drop well below freezing late this evening. As a result, untreated surfaces could become icy and slippery. In addition, gusty westerly winds will develop tonight associated with a low pressure system with reduced visibility in blowing snow possible.
Wind gusts to 70 kilometres per hour are likely and local tree damage affecting power lines is possible.
