It says that heavy snow is expected to head east of Georgian Bay by this evening and hit the Nickel Belt before moving on to Quebec.

“Significant” freezing rain is forecast in eastern Ontario overnight, while areas north of lakes Erie and Ontario – including Toronto – could see a few hours of it this evening.

Wind chill warnings have also been issued for parts of northwestern Ontario, including Dryden and Kenora.

Environment Canada is urging caution on the roads as the snow and ice could lead to treacherous travel conditions.
