Environment Canada has advised a series of weather systems will be moving through the province beginning this evening ending Friday. These systems have the potential to cover most of the southern half of the province, and cause impact to highway travel and possible road closures.
Currently temperatures are expected to drop significantly Tuesday night with freezing conditions by Wednesday evening. Similarly, winds are expected to increase and remain steady for the rest of the week.
Most of the impacted areas can expect 5-10 cm (2-4 inches) of wet snow, with some areas experiencing 10-15 cm (4-6 inch).
It is expected that the snow fall will cause low visibility conditions. When there is freezing rain, avoid driving. Even a small amount of freezing rain can make roads extremely slippery.
Please be prepared – this storm could be minor but should this storm produce hydro issues please ensure you are prepared for this. Confirm your batteries are in good condition for flashlights and radios.
