Winter Travel Advisory Thursday December 6

There were Snow Squall Warnings issued for the Huron and Perth Counties this morning; but they have since been downgraded to watches and residents or travelers to those regions are being encouraged to be on the lookout for adverse weather conditions.

 

There has also been a Winter Weather Travel Advisory issued to be in effect this morning and afternoon for the Niagara Region including Niagara Falls, Welland, St. Catharines, Grimsby, as well as Dunnville, Caledonia, and Haldimand.

 

A band of lake effect snow is affecting portions of eastern Lake Erie early this morning. Latest analysis is suggesting that this band will slowly lift northward through the morning to reach northern Niagara by late morning. This band is then expected to shift back south in the afternoon and out of the region by evening.

Southern Niagara will likely be impacted the most with 10 to 15 cm possible in areas that receive the most persistent snowfall. Northern Niagara will likely see considerably less accumulation.

Travel today will likely be hazardous at times. In addition, gusty winds may result in areas of blowing snow and poor visibility.

 

If you are planning to travel in these regions you should be aware of potential poor conditions.
