Alerts for: Peterborough - Kawartha Lakes


10:35 AM EST Saturday 20 January 2018
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Apsley - Woodview - Northern Peterborough County
  • Fenelon Falls - Balsam Lake Park - Northern Kawartha Lakes
  • Lindsay - Southern Kawartha Lakes
  • Peterborough City - Lakefield - Southern Peterborough County

Freezing rain likely developing on Monday.

A deepening Colorado low is forecast to cross the lower Great Lakes for the start of the work week. Some inconsequential drizzle or light flurries may be present during the Monday morning commute. A few areas north from the Oak Ridges Moraine into the Dundalk Highlands may also have some freezing drizzle.

However, a more significant freezing rain threat is becoming increasingly likely during the day Monday. Colder easterly winds are expected to intensify, causing temperatures to dip to near or just below the zero degree mark. As a result, incoming precipitation from the low will likely fall as freezing rain, especially Monday afternoon and potentially into the evening. The Monday evening commute may be significantly impacted by icy roads.

Freezing rain warnings will likely be issued as the event approaches.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
