Environment Canada has ended a winter weather travel advisory for Tuesday afternoon and into the evening in Hamilton.

Forecasters say they expect total snowfall amounts of five to 10 centimetres, with about 15 centimetres possible.

Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga, Brampton, Milton and Halton Hills remain under a snowfall warning with upwards of 15 centimetres of snow expected to fall on Tuesday.

The national weather agency says “rapidly accumulating snow may make travel difficult,” and heavy snow and blowing snow will reduce visibility for motorists.
