Kawartha Lakes Winter Storm Warning - Drive Carefully!

Kawartha Lakes Mums - Heading Out? Drive Carefully!

Environment Canada issued a Special weather statement  at 10:28 this morning, though if you live here it is probably old news to you.
The special weather statement is in effect for:

  • Northern Kawartha Lakes -Fenelon Falls - Balsam Lake Park -
  • Southern Kawartha Lakes -Lindsay 
  • Peterborough City - Lakefield - Southern Peterborough County
  • Apsley - Woodview - Northern Peterborough County

Following yesterday's springlike tease, winter's wrath has returned.

An area of low pressure currently over Ohio continues to track northeastwards and will pass south of the Lower Great Lakes today. Snow and blowing snow has enveloped most of Southern Ontario this morning and is becoming quite heavy at times for many areas. It will spread into Eastern Ontario late this morning. The heaviest snow is expected to fall north of Lake Erie and portions of Eastern Ontario where winter storm warnings are in effect. However, a significant snowfall of 10 to 15 cm is likely from Southern Lake Huron across the Greater Toronto area to just south of Ottawa. This is close to the warning criteria of 15 cm in a 12 hour period. Amounts will trail off to 5 cm from Northern Lake Huron across Barrie to the north of Ottawa.
Motorists are advised to exercise caution when travelling today due to poor visibilities in snow and blowing snow as well as slippery roads.
The snow will taper off late today or this evening.
The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
