Statements

12:37 AM EST Wednesday 19 January 2022
Weather advisory in effect for:

  • Apsley - Woodview - Northern Peterborough County
  • Fenelon Falls - Balsam Lake Park - Northern Kawartha Lakes

Winter weather travel advisory in effect.

What:
Snow, heavy at times, with accumulations of 7 to 14 cm.
Risk of freezing drizzle.

When:
Now through Wednesday.

Discussion:
Snow has developed over the area and will taper to flurries Wednesday morning. Through Wednesday morning, there will also be the risk of freezing drizzle before temperatures moderate in the early afternoon. A sharp cold front will push through the region late Wednesday afternoon causing temperatures to abruptly drop below freezing. The combination of accumulating snow, freezing drizzle, and falling temperatures late Wednesday afternoon will make for hazardous road conditions, particularly for untreated surfaces.

Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions and adjust travel plans accordingly. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.
