Weather Alert issued for Kawartha Lakes

KAWARTHA LAKES-Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for parts of the City of Kawartha Lakes.

Potential for some brief heavy snow along a cold front late Sunday. A more widespread snowfall likely Monday and Monday night for the following areas:

  • Apsley – Woodview – Northern Peterborough County
  • Fenelon Falls – Balsam Lake Park – Northern Kawartha Lakes
  • Lindsay – Southern Kawartha Lakes

An Arctic cold front will cross Southern Ontario later in the day on Sunday into the evening. It will likely be accompanied by a brief burst of heavier snow with reduced visibilities affecting travel. A coating of a couple of centimetres in a short timeframe is possible in some areas.

On Monday, an approaching Alberta Clipper is expected to deliver the first widespread snowfall to virtually all of Southern Ontario. General snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 centimetres appear likely at this early juncture. Although localized slightly higher amounts are possible, snowfall warnings are not expected (where at least 15 centimetres would have to fall within 12 hours).
