Lake effect snow bands off Georgian Bay have developed in cool westerly winds. Highest accumulations are expected over higher terrain and grassy surfaces, while warmer temperatures on primary roadways will limit accumulations.


Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions and adjust travel plans accordingly. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common.

Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.
