Winter storm conditions continue today




Winter storm conditions continue today.

Hazards: Total snowfall amounts of 40 to 60 cm. Local blowing snow due to winds gusting up to 60 km/h which will significantly reduce visibility.

When: Now through this evening.

Discussion: A low pressure system tracking south of the Great Lakes will bring significant snowfall to the region. The heaviest snowfall has already occurred, however, additional amounts are still possible before snow tapers off late this afternoon or early this evening. Local blowing snow is also possible this afternoon and evening with gusty northerly to northwesterly winds.

Impacts:

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult. Road closures are possible. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
