On Wednesday afternoon, Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) issued a snowfall warning, stating that anywhere from 10 to 20 centimetres of snow is expected.

"Snow, heavy at times, will begin this evening and continue through Thursday. Precipitation will begin as rain or rain mixed with snow over lower elevations, before transitioning to snow. Locally higher amounts are possible," the warning said.

Snow is expected to taper off Thursday evening, but visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.

"Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas."

Motorists should be prepared to adjust their driving to changing road conditions.

"If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop."

On Thursday morning ECCC said that the snowfall warning had ended.
