Keep the shovels on standby, because Hamilton is set to see a substantial amount of snowfall today.
An updated weather advisory from Environment Canada is forecasting significant snowfall throughout Wednesday, January 25th, beginning late Wednesday morning and ending in the very early morning on Thursday.
The total snowfall is expected to reach 15 to 20 centimetres; an upgrade from the 10 to 15 centimetres originally forecast earlier this week.
