WEATHER ADVISORY


Winter weather travel advisory in effect. Hazards: Reduced visibility in heavy wet snow. Slippery conditions due to wet roads and rapidly falling temperatures. Timing: Continuing into this evening. Discussion: A sharp cold front moving through eastern Ontario will bring a burst of heavy wet snow. Wind along the front may gust as high as 70 km/h. This combination of snow and strong winds may create a period of challenging driving conditions. Local snowfall amounts of 1 or 2 cm are possible. In addition, a sudden drop in temperature in the wake of the cold front could cause roads, sidewalks and parking lots to become slippery. Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Slow down driving in slippery conditions. Watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.
