Special weather statement in effect for:

  • City of Hamilton

Significant snowfall expected Sunday into Sunday night.

Snow is expected to begin Sunday morning. 5 to 10 cm of snow is possible before the snow tapers off overnight.

Travel is expected to be impacted due to moderate to heavy snow. Motorists should be prepared for winter weather driving conditions.

This is a result of a Colorado Low that will track from Ohio towards the St. Lawrence River Sunday into Monday.

There is still some uncertainty in model guidance as to the exact track of the low and the axis of heaviest snow. We will continue to monitor the situation and update Special Weather Statements as newer data becomes available.
