A winter travel advisory has been issued for Hamilton on Monday (Jan. 24) as the city braces for another significant snowfall.

According to Environment Canada, 5 to 10 cm of snowfall is possible by Monday evening which, at times, is expected to reduce visibility.

The weather agency warns motorists to expect hazardous winter driving conditions and urges drivers to consider altering travel plans accordingly.

“Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas,” the advisory noted.

“Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.”

Rush hour traffic in particular will be impacted.

The snow is expected to dissipate after midnight.
