In addition to the snowfall, strong northerly winds with gusts to 70 km/h will be blowing for most of the day.
Visibility may be reduced in areas and Environment Canada warns that heavy snow could make travel difficult. They advise motorists to be prepared to adjust to the changing road conditions.
