Winter storm approaching Hamilton

If you were tempted to bring the patio furniture out of storage, think again.

A special weather statement is in effect for Hamilton as two separate weather systems threaten to bring snow, freezing rain and ice pellets to the area Tuesday.

An Arctic front will bring either cold rain or wet snow to much of the Golden Horseshoe, according to Environment Canada.

But then a second system – this one from Colorado – will hit with full winter force through Wednesday and Thursday.

"This late season winter storm is threatening to bring significant amounts of precipitation to Southern Ontario," the agency states on its website.

"Latest indications suggest significant snow is possible over areas extending from Lake Huron and Georgian Bay across northern parts of the GTA.

"Freezing rain and ice pellets may be a significant issue to deal with across a large part of Southwestern Ontario, the Golden Horseshoe and parts of Eastern Ontario."

"A significant rainfall may be an issue to deal with over locales closer to Lake Erie."

The exact path of the system is difficult to map, making it hard to forecast which areas of Ontario will get snow or rain.
