Environment Canada issues winter storm warning

WEATHER ALERT
ENVIRONMENT CANADA
*************************
Winter storm warning in force for:

  • Newmarket – Georgina – Northern York Region
  • Pickering – Oshawa – Southern Durham Region
  • Uxbridge-Beaverton – Northern Durham Region
  • Vaughan- Richmond Hill-Markham

Winter storms continue.

Hazards:
Total snowfall amounts of 25-35 cm
The snow, at times heavy, will significantly reduce visibility.
Wind gusts up to 60 km/h can sometimes cause local blowing snow

When: From now through the evening.

Discussion: A low pressure system moving south of the Great Lakes will bring substantial snowfall to the region. The commute will be significantly affected by heavy snowfall this morning. With gusty northwesterly winds, local blowing snow is also possible.

Impacts:

Consider delaying travel that is not essential until conditions improve. The accumulation of snow can make it difficult to navigate surfaces such as roads, walkways, parking lots, and highways. In heavy snowfall, visibility may be reduced suddenly. This could have a significant effect on urban rush hour traffic.
