Blowing Snow AdvisoryIssued at 3:12 p.m. EST Sunday 1 February 2015
A developing winter storm will track south of the Great Lakes tonight. Snow will develop for areas north of Lake Ontario this evening and continue into Monday morning. General snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are expected. Northeast winds gusting to 60 km/h are expected to develop overnight and persist Monday morning. These gusty winds combined with the falling snow will result in blowing snow reducing visibility to 500 metres or less at times. The poor conditions will improve later Monday morning as the winds diminish and the snow moves out.Details
Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Weather Advisories for blowing snow are issued when winds are expected to create blowing snow giving poor visibility to 800 metres or less for at least 3 hours. Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required, so stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio.
