Environment Canada warns that snow on Thursday before the storm may bring 5 to 10 centimeters of snow. The actual storm is expected to bring 15 to 30 additional centimeters of snow. Gusty northeasterly winds may result in blowing snow which could  further reduce visibility to near zero at times causing significant travel delays and road closures may occur. There remains some uncertainty in the exact track of the system which will affect total snowfall amounts.
