Forecasts call for anywhere from seven to 15 centimetres of snow in more western regions, with higher accumulations expected further east.

A travel advisory has been issued by Environment Canada, which is urging residents to be prepared for winter weather driving conditions. The Canadian Farmers' Almanac predicts that the province is in for plenty of freezing rain and ice during the festive season.

The statement will last until 10 p.m. Sunday.

The advisory warns of "quickly accumulating snow rates at times" along with slippery road conditions and low visibility at times. The snow is expected to fall between Sunday morning and midnight. Rapidly accumulating snow will make travel hard. On Nov. 2, Ottawa received 3.7 centimetres of snow.

"This is tracking to be our first winter event of the year", city spokesperson Eric Holmes said in an interview with CP24 Saturday evening. "We're ready for everything". It'll be out. It'll be clearing snow.

The meteorologist says the weather system originated in Colorado, and the Colorado low has been making its way through Ontario through the day.

Sunday will see a mix of sun and cloud in the morning. The high will be 5 C.
