Take care on area roads


The second winter storm in three days is starting to hit Chatham-Kent.

This from Environment Canada:

Snowfall warning in effect for:

  • Chatham-Kent – Rondeau Park
  • Windsor – Leamington – Essex County

Snowfall, with total amounts of about 15 cm is expected.

Snow has begun in Windsor and will become heavy at times this afternoon and move eastward. The main snow event is expected to end near midnight, however, a few flurries or local snow squalls are possible south of Lake Huron early Thursday.

Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.

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