Environment Canada has issued snowfall warnings and special weather statements as far east as Kingston.

Forecasters say snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 centimetres are expected tonight and Friday.

There could also be heavy and blowing snow for the afternoon commute.

Some freezing rain and ice pellets are possible over the extreme southwest.
