TORONTO — Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for southern Ontario due to a major storm system forecasted to hit the region Wednesday and Thursday.

The “major storm system” is expected to bring rain and significant snow to some areas, along with the possibility of freezing rain.

The weather office says a low pressure system developing over the Southern States will track northeast to reach southern Ontario Wednesday.

Environment Canada is uncertain where the heaviest force of the storm will hit as it will depend on the system’s track.
