Environment Canada has issued a winter weather travel advisory for the southern Kawarthas, including Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes, and Northumberland, for Tuesday morning and afternoon (December 31).

Snow is affecting much of southwestern Ontario this morning and is advancing eastward. There may be brief bursts of heavier snow with very poor visibility at times.

Accumulations should be limited to a few centimetres at most. However, strong wind gusts up to 70 km/h are also anticipated.

The combination of heavy snow and strong winds will result in reduced visibility.
