Environment Canada has issued a snow squall warning for Haliburton County and a winter weather travel advisory for northern Peterborough County and northern Kawartha Lakes.
Lake effect snow squalls are expected to affect the areas Thursday night (November 18) into early Friday morning.
In Haliburton County, local snowfall accumulation of up to 20 cm is expected, with higher amounts possible for areas under the heaviest snow squall bands. In addition to the snowfall, reduced visibility in local blowing snow is also possible.
In northern Peterborough County and northern Kawartha Lakes, including Apsley and Fenelon Falls, local snowfall accumulation of 10 to 15 cm is possible by Friday morning.
The snow squalls will start to shift south overnight and are expected to move out of the area by early Friday morning.
Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions and adjust travel plans accordingly. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
