Snow could arrive in Ontario sooner than expected this fall, as a strong autumn storm originating from the Canadian Rockies moves southeast along the U.S.-Canadian border.

According to The Weather Channel, a band of snow is expected to blanket northern and central Alberta, central Saskatchewan, southern Manitoba and southwestern Ontario sometime between Thursday night and the following days. Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba is predicted to get anywhere from five to 10 centimetres, while southwestern Ontario may get as much as 25 centimetres along the border line.

Alternating low and high pressure systems will also contribute gusty winds that will travel as fast as 100 km/hr. Read the full weather report and forecast by The Weather Channel here.
