SNOWFALL WARNING IN EFFECT


Hello folks, we hope you are all doing well. It seems we are in for another storm tonight going into tomorrow morning.


Environment Canada has issued an extreme snowfall warning. Please see their public weather alert below:


There is a winter storm warning in effect for various areas surrounding Belleville Ontario.

"It will be a significant winter storm with dangerous travel conditions expected tonight. Non-essential travel strongly discouraged.


Hazards:

Significantly reduced visibility due to heavy snow and blowing snow.

Total snowfall accumulations of 15 to 25 cm.

Snowfall rates of 4 to 6 cm/h possible.

Rapidly accumulating snowfall creating hazardous travel conditions.


Timing:

This evening into Saturday morning. The most dangerous conditions are expected late this evening into early overnight.

Discussion:

A Texas low is expected to bring heavy snow and strong winds to a large swath of southern Ontario. Snow will begin this evening and quickly become heavy at times. Heavy snow in combination with strong easterly winds will create significantly reduced visibility and hazardous travel conditions.


Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.


Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance."
