KAWARTHA LAKES-Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement warning of heavy snow.
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Apsley – Woodview – Northern Peterborough County
- Lindsay – Southern Kawartha Lakes
Heavy snow and local blowing snow likely Sunday night into Monday.
Snow is forecast to arrive across southern Ontario Sunday night. Snow will spread rapidly northeastward through the day Monday.
The snow will fall heavily at times with snowfall rates of a few centimetres per hour possible. Travel will likely be difficult due to the expected heavy snow.
Total snowfall accumulations of 10 to 20 cm are expected, however, locally higher amounts cannot be ruled out. Some uncertainty remains in exact amounts, as this region lies on the western edge of the area expected to receive snow.
In addition, northwesterly winds gusting up to 50 km/h will result in areas of poor visibility due to local blowing snow Monday afternoon.
Conditions are forecast to improve by Monday evening as the snow comes to an end.
