Environment Canada has issued a blowing snow advisory for the area

Following the freezing rain, expected poor visibilities in local blowing snow this afternoon through tonight.

Strong and gusty westerly winds will whip up freshly fallen snow and cause sudden near zero visibility at times in blowing snow beginning this afternoon.

Very low to nil visibility in blowing snow will continue tonight as the winds shift to northwest.

Winds and blowing snow will slowly ease on Monday.

Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero.

If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
