Winter Weather Travel Advisory Issued For Fenelon Falls And Northern Kawartha Lakes

KAWARTHA LAKES-Environment Canada has issued a winter weather travel advisory warning of a treacherous commute possible Monday morning.

The advisory is currently in effect for Fenelon Falls – Balsam Lake Park – Northern Kawartha Lakes.

Officials say snow squalls are expected to develop off Georgian Bay and Lake Huron early Monday morning and persist through the morning commute.

These snow squalls are expected to develop in the wake of a cold front and will bring rapidly accumulating snowfall along with reduced visibilities at times. Strong winds near the shores of Georgian Bay will also aid in reduced visibilities due to blowing snow.

Snowfall accumulations of 5 to 10 cm are expected with locally up to 15 cm possible in areas experiencing the most intense squalls. The squalls will move out through Monday afternoon.

Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common.
