‘Significant’ winter storm expected to hit Hamilton

After a snowstorm was forecasted last week that never truly came to be, Hamilton is once again expected to see a winter storm ahead of the Christmas holiday.

A notice from Environment Canada warns that a ‘significant’ winter storm could be heading to Hamilton as soon as late Thursday into early Friday with some rain or snow falling overnight.

Temperatures are then forecasted to plummet on Friday, leading to the possibility of a flash freeze for spots that receive rainfall.

Though amount and type of precipitation is uncertain at this time, Environment Canada also says that there is high confidence in a high impact winter storm heading into the weekend courtesy of a multi-day lake effect snow event.

“Consider altering plans through the holiday weekend as travel conditions may become dangerous,” reads a note from Environment Canada.

“Extensive utility outages are possible. Temperatures Friday night into the weekend will likely be the coldest of the season to date.”
