KAWARTHA LAKES-A Special Weather Statement warning of heavy snowfall has been issued for Kawartha Lakes.

Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Fenelon Falls – Balsam Lake Park – Northern Kawartha Lakes
  • Lindsay – Southern Kawartha Lakes

Environment Canada says significant snowfall expected Sunday into Sunday night.

Snow is expected to begin Sunday afternoon. 5 to 10 cm of snow is possible before the snow tapers off Monday morning.

Travel is expected to be impacted due to moderate to heavy snow. Motorists should be prepared for winter weather driving conditions.

This is a result of a Colorado Low that will track from Ohio towards the St. Lawrence River Sunday into Monday.

Officials say there is still some uncertainty in model guidance as to the exact track of the low and the axis of heaviest snow. We will continue to monitor the situation and update Special Weather Statements as newer data becomes available.
