Snowfall warning issued for the Kawarthas for Monday and Tuesday

15 cm for most of the Kawarthas, up to 20 cm in Northumberland

Winter snow on parked car

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for all of the Kawarthas due to significant snowfall expected to begin later today (January 28) and continue into Tuesday morning.

An Alberta Clipper will cross southern Ontario bringing snow, at times heavy, on Monday afternoon. The snow will persist into Tuesday morning.

Total snowfall amounts near 15 cm are likely, with up to 20 cm in areas closer to Lake Ontario (such as Northumberland County), where extra moisture from the lake may boost snowfall amounts.

There will likely be a significant impact on the commute both this evening and Tuesday morning.

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.
