With 10 to 20 centimetres of snow expected, the city of Calgary — and indeed, much of southern Alberta — was under a snowfall warning that ended around noon.

"This snowfall is due to a developing low pressure system which will track south of the lower Great Lakes on Monday," Environment Canada said in a statement.

Environment Canada advises those driving to be prepared to adjust to changing road conditions, including potential reduced visibility due to heavy snowfall.

And in Calgary, from 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday, 93 incidents involving vehicles were reported: nine with non-serious injuries, and 84 without injury.

Cities like Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, Niagara Falls and St. Catharines could pick up 15 to 25 cm of snow, thanks to gusty northwest winds. 

Significant snowfall on its way

The good news? Heavy snow is expected to end in the afternoon — so if you’re going to see the Calgary Stampeders take on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the West Semifinal, you (and the players) may only have to deal with the cold. Today’s high is a balmy -12 C, while tonight it’s only (only!) expected to drop as low as -15 C.

And even more good news: temperatures are expected to warm right back up Monday, with an anticipated high of 2 C, and more positive temperatures forecasted throughout the week.

Monday is also Remembrance Day. There will be a number of services — both indoor and outdoor — held throughout the city.

If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices.

A weather advisory has been issued for Toronto and most of the GTA ahead of a significant snowfall on Monday.

They also say there is still uncertainty with regards to the track of the system, which was more south of the border, but any wind change pushing the system further north would enhance the London’s snow totals dramatically.

"This snowfall is due to a developing low pressure system which will track south of the lower Great Lakes on Monday," Environment Canada said in a statement.

The weather agency says a developing low pressure system will track south of the lower Great Lakes and will bring snow into portions of southern Ontario Sunday night into Monday.

"There remains some uncertainty regarding the track of the low, and the expected snowfall amounts."

It hasn’t even been a full week since the first snowfall event for the London region, and we’re already in for more of the white stuff.

Mississauga, Brampton, Markham, Vaughan, Milton, Caledon Richmond Hill, Pickering, Oshawa are also under a weather advisory.

Hamilton, Burlington, and Oakville are under a snowfall warning. They could see up to 25 cm of snow.

Snowfall warning ended in Calgary, still in effect for surrounding communities

The weather agency said he snow will begin early Monday morning and will continue through the evening. The snow is expected to end around midnight.

"Its here, Im from Calgary. It comes. It goes," said John Chandler as he paused from clearing sidewalks in Garrison Woods with a snowblower.
