A snowfall warning was issued for areas in the southwest corner of the province. The weather agency described the expected precipitation as “heavy snow” and said areas issued a warning could see anywhere between 10 and 20 cm of snow.

“The heaviest, more widespread snow will occur tonight,” Environment Canada said on its website. “Snow will taper off on Saturday.

“Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.”
