Parts of Southern Ontario, particularly those in the lee of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, could get upwards of 25 centimetres of snow Tuesday. High winds off the Great Lakes are expected to form blizzard-like conditions at times. There were school bus cancellations Tuesday morning in the traditional snow belt areas. Grey-Bruce, Dufferin, Simcoe and the Muskoka areas are under a snow squall watch. The Ontario Provincial Police report treacherous driving condition on Highway 11 in the Bracebridge-Huntsville area and are urging motorists to stay off the roads. All areas in the lee of the great lakes are affected. The Buffalo-Niagara area, in the lee of Lake Erie, has already received upwards of 3 feet of snow today. At one point in Buffalo snow was falling at the rate of three inches an hour. White-out conditions caused New York State Police to close a 100 mile stretch of Interstate 90 between Rochester and Dunkirk. The GTA is expecting about 5 centemetres of snow Wednesday.
