Heavy snow will continue tonight. Total snowfall amounts of 20 to 30 cm is expected by the time the snow tapers off Monday afternoon. In addition, strong winds gusting up to 70 km/h will reduce visibility in blowing snow.

Winter storm warnings are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.
