Environment Canada has issued a winter weather travel advisory for Thursday afternoon (January 21) for the northern Kawarthas.

Locally heavy snow squalls are forecast to develop Thursday afternoon.

While these snow squalls are not expected to linger over any one area very long, heavy snow and reduced visibility caused by blowing snow will make travel difficult at times.

Up to 10 cm of new snowfall can be expected by the time the snow squalls move south of the area Thursday evening.

Travellers should consider changing their travel plans accordingly.
