Weather Advisory

Issued at 12:10 Thursday 27 January 2022

Winter weather travel advisory in effect.

What:
Lake effect snow with accumulations of 5 to 10 cm.
Reduced visibility from heavy snow and local blowing snow

When:
This afternoon into tonight.

Discussion:
Flurries off Lake Huron and Georgian Bay are forecast to become more widespread this afternoon. This evening, a particularly heavy band of snow, with peak snowfall rates up to 2 to 3 cm per hour, is forecast to develop and move southward across the region as a sharp arctic cold front moves through.

This band of snow will move south of the area overnight as winds become northerly in the wake of the cold front.

Motorists are advised to exercise caution.

###

Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions and adjust travel plans accordingly. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
