SD&G – Snow over the next 24 hours is expected to slowly accumulate in the Seaway Valley and is expected to continue into Monday.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement Saturday afternoon saying an Arctic front stalled over the southwestern half of the province will lead to persistent snowfall in the east.

While there’s not enough snow to trigger a snowfall warning (you have to have 15 centimeters in 12 hours for Environment Canada to issue a warning), the weather agency wanted to alert residents about the snow and wind.

Cornwall and SD&G is expected to have up to 9 centimeters of snow in the next 12 hours and up to 13 centimeters by Sunday night.

The winds are expected to pick up this weekend creating blowing snow and reduced visibility at times.

The flurries are also expected to continue Monday.
