Environment Canada is warning that a winter storm is headed for Ontario, set to hit on Tuesday and overnight into Wednesday.

Monday Night: We will see rain and sleet before 10 p.m., then freezing rain and sleet between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m., then rain and sleet after 4 a.m. Temperatures will drop to a low of 32 degrees.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Marie-Eve Giguere says it's only going to get worse throughout the day. We could then see rain and sleet after 4 p.m. Highs will be near 39 degrees and calm winds will head northeast around 6 miles per hour in the morning.

Schools closed across Washington state and the Legislature canceled all hearings Monday with winter snowstorms pummeling the Northwest again as a larger weather system wreaked havoc in the region and even brought snow to Hawaii.

We are now entering the relative "lull" period of this storm system. The average temperature for December in Hamilton is -2.3 C, but it was a relatively balmy -0.5 C last December.

If you have to shovel, you may as well have fun with it. Four to nine inches of snow mixed with sleet is possible with wind speeds as high as 35 miles per hour.

Here's the plan for the rest of Monday and Tuesday.
