SD&G – Time to dig out the shovels and scrapers.

Cornwall and SD&G could be blanketed with up to 10 centimeters of snow by Monday night.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement late Sunday morning for SD&G and much of Eastern Ontario and the Ottawa Valley.

It says a low pressure system will push into Ontario and snow will likely start along the Lake Erie shoreline Sunday night before tracking east.

It’s expected to move into Eastern Ontario Monday morning and spread to SD&G and the St. Lawrence River shoreline Monday afternoon.

The same storm system affected the U.S. Midwest, and is expected to drop snow in Texas as is streches north to the Ohio Valley, according to AccuWeather.com.

American meteorologists expect the storm to pick up steam as it heads to the U.S. Northeast and New England.

For Cornwall and SD&G, the amount of snow may be less in the range of 5-10 centimeters along the river as it mixes with rain, said the weather agency.
