Winter Weather Travel Advisory In Effect For Fenelon Falls And Northern Kawartha Lakes

KAWARTHA LAKES-Environment Canada has issued a Winter Weather Travel Advisory for Saturday into Sunday morning.

Weather advisory in effect for:

  • Fenelon Falls – Balsam Lake Park – Northern Kawartha Lakes

Officials warn of sudden near zero visibility in heavy snow and blowing snow with snowfall accumulations near 5 cm over some locations.

Snow squalls are expected to develop in strong southwesterly winds early Saturday morning. These scattered snow squalls are expected to suddenly cause visibility to be reduced to near zero. Snowfall amounts near 5 cm are possible by the time snow squalls taper to flurries Sunday morning.

Travel is not recommended. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common.
