Heavy snow with total amounts of 15 to 25 cm expected.

Snow is expected to begin early Wednesday morning, and will become heavy late Wednesday afternoon. Heavy snow will continue through Wednesday night before tapering to a few flurries Thursday morning.

This snow is the result of a low pressure system from the central United States that is forecast to track over Eastern Ontario Wednesday night.
