Heavy snow may cause visibility to be reduced.
Wind gusts up to 60 km/h can sometimes cause local blowing snow

Weather changes can cause travel to be dangerous. Transport delays can be caused by poor weather conditions. You should be prepared to adapt your driving to changing road conditions. Be extra cautious when driving or walking in a slippery area. When conditions are slippery, slow down. Pay attention to the taillights ahead, and maintain a safe distance. Snow accumulation can make it difficult for vehicles to navigate roads, walkways, parking lots, and highways. This could have a significant impact upon urban rush hour traffic.
