Winter Weather Travel Advisory in effect for tonight.

Snowfall and rapidly falling temperatures could affect road conditions this evening and then strong winds develop.

A cold front will track over Southern Ontario later this evening. As this front passes, temperatures will drop and scattered rain showers will change to flurries in the evening. Temperatures will continue to drop well below freezing overnight. As a result, untreated surfaces could become icy and slippery.

West to southwesterly wind gusts up to 70 kilometres per hour are possible in some regions this evening. Visibilities may be reduced in blowing snow. Local tree damage affecting power lines is possible.
