    A significant low pressure system emerged out of the Southern U.S.
    and tracked southeast of the Lower Great Lakes Monday night bringing
    snow and blowing snow to Southern Ontario.

    The highest snowfall totals were observed in the Hamilton and

    hazardous. Exact amounts in the St. Catharines area are a bit
    uncertain, but there is an unconfirmed report of over 40 cm of total
    snowfall accumulation. Locally higher snowfall accumulations were
    also noted over the higher terrain south of Georgian Bay.
