Hamilton will see a snow and ice storm on Wednesday

After the tease of some recent sunny days, Hamilton is expected to be hit with a snow and ice storm beginning Wednesday and lasting into Thursday. 

Forecasted to begin late Wednesday afternoon, a weather advisory from Environment Canada explains that Hamilton and the surrounding area could see snowfall – heavy at times – with total amounts near 5 centimetres. 

Following that will be a prolonged period of freezing rain, with significant ice build-up in some areas and ice accretion of 10 to 20 millimetres possible. 

The storm is expected to last into early Thursday morning, leaving outdoor surfaces and roadways slippery and hazardous. 

Environment Canada advises individuals to drive carefully and slowly in slippery conditions, and for pedestrians on foot to take similar caution. Extensive utility outages and tree damage are also possible due to both ice accretion and strong winds.
