Ottawa's biggest snowstorm of the year so far may come on April 3 and 4.

Environment Canada has upgraded more of Tuesday's special weather statements to snowfall warnings for communities along the south, Ontario shore of the Ottawa River.

Ottawa and communities to its east such as Cornwall and Hawkesbury, plus Gatineau, could get a rainy start to Wednesday followed by a change to snow late in the afternoon or early in the evening.

Ten to 20 centimetres of snow could end up falling by the time it peters out Thursday.

After some rain, places west of Ottawa could see snow start a bit later in the evening and get 15 to 30 centimetres of it.

Environment Canada says be prepared for difficult travel and power outages because the snow may be heavy and wet.

Statements about rain, snow and wind

There are special weather statements on either side of these warnings.

Western Quebec's forecast is for it to take about 24 hours for about 10 to 15 centimetres of wet snow to fall starting Wednesday evening.

Communities south and west of the warning, which roughly ends at the Lanark and Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry borders, are expected to get 10 to 30 millimetres of rain in the morning and afternoon with a topping of 10 centimetres of snow or more through the night.

Finally, Kingston and communities to its west have a rainfall range of 25 to 50 millimetres and easterly wind gusts up to 70 kilometres an hour this morning close to Lake Ontario.

A splattering of wet snow should come after that and it may stick on the ground in some places.

The forecast sticks out in what's been a dry, warm past few months.

Ottawa hasn't had a storm bring at least 20 centimetres of snow since early March 2023. It measured a total of about 20 centimetres of snow in February and March.

Measurements taken at the Ottawa International Airport showed just under 40 millimetres of precipitation last month.

The capital has had four warmer-than-normal months in a row. Daytime temperatures are expected to slip to colder than average Wednesday, Thursday and Friday before rising again on the weekend.
