SD&G – We are on the verge of getting a dumping of snow Tuesday night through Wednesday.

Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning at 12:17 p.m. Tuesday afternoon for SD&G and Cornwall.

A storm off the Atlantic Seaboard will bring plenty of the white stuff starting tonight and continuing through Wednesday.

The weather agency says we could get 15-25 centimeters of snow and the highest amounts will be in the Cornwall to Hawkesbury area.

The same Nor’easter has put parts of the northeastern U.S. under flood watches with coastal flooding expected from Philadelphia, Pa. to Portland, Maine.

In New York, The Weather Channel says some areas around the Adirondacks are expecting as much as 24 inches (61 centimeters) and Burlington, Vt. could see 18 inches (46 centimeters).

Back in SD&G, hazardous driving conditions are also expected as the wind picks up causing blowing snow.

The snow should taper off by Thursday.
