“Just when I thought I was out,” said Michael Corleone, in The Godfather Part III, “they pull me back in.”
Strictly speaking, Corleone wasn’t talking about winter in Ottawa. But if he was reading the weather on Sunday morning, he might have delivered the same timeless line, because although Ottawa has enjoyed two sunny, snow-free days, another nasty winter storm is expected to blow through the city on Tuesday, prompting Environment Canada to issue a special weather statement.
“A low pressure brewing over the Southern Plains States may intensify into a winter storm as it tracks over Southern Ontario Tuesday,” reads the statement. “There is a potential for 15 to 25 cm of snow across the area, with high amounts possible should this low pressure system become more moisture laden.”
They also warn that strong winds may impact visibility with blowing snow.
Environment Canada says that this storm may have “significant impact on travel.” So as always, drive safe and slowly and leave lots of space between the car ahead, if you happen to be driving.
