In the nation’s capital, Ottawa is set to receive 30-40 centimetres of snow on Tuesday and Wednesday. Meanwhile, Toronto will be nailed with freezing rain and 80km/h strong winds.
Environment Canada is warning commuters about travelling during the storm, which in Ottawa is set to begin by midday Tuesday.
“Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations,” the agency says. “There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.”
They suggest that you carry a mobile phone and emergency kit on you if you need to go out. Additionally, they recommend keeping someone informed about your whereabouts.
For Toronto, the combination of strong winds and snow will result in reduced visibility, making driving quite dangerous.
