Special weather statement issued for Christmas Eve in the Kawartha Lakes

KAWARTHA LAKES-Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the Kawartha Lakes for Christmas Eve.

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

Widespread snowfall of 5 to 10 cm is expected on Christmas Eve, with higher amounts possible near the Lake Ontario shore.

A developing low pressure system will track south of the Great Lakes Sunday night, bringing another round of snow for much of Southern Ontario. Snow will begin late Sunday afternoon, with the bulk of the snow falling Sunday night. General snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are expected by the time the snow ends early Monday morning. Higher amounts up to 15 cm are possible with lake enhancement in the easterly winds off Lake Ontario.

While the winter wonderland will be lovely to see come Christmas Day, it could contribute to challenging travelling conditions for those visiting family and friends over the holidays.
