People in northeastern Ontario have been hit with up to 15 cm of lake effect snow that blanketed communities starting Tuesday night and similar effects will be seen in cottage country Wednesday morning.
A weak low pressure system is moving into the region across the Great Lakes, bringing bands of significant lake effect snow.
"The odd thing about these bands is that they're coming from the southwest, instead of the west," Weather Network meteorologist Brian Dillon says.
The severity of the storm will be increased as a warm front coming off the lakes combines with a more-typical cold front moving in from the west, causing the snow in some areas to last some time.
"The winds are not a problem, but the snow will be," Dillon says.
People in the region should expect heavy snow on roadways, with very poor visibility.
The morning commute in Cottage Country could be tricky as bands of lake effect snow will be seen in the region. Dillon says this should die out by the afternoon.
