Environment Canada has issued a winter weather travel advisory for the northern Kawarthas region beginning Tuesday afternoon (November 21).
The winter weather travel advisory is in effect for northern Peterborough County, northern Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton County, and Hastings Highlands.
Total snowfall amounts of 4 to 8 cm are expected beginning Tuesday afternoon, with peak snowfall rates of 2 cm per hour. Snowfall accumulations could be limited due to warm surface temperatures.
Snow will begin to switch to rain later Tuesday evening and into the overnight hours, although in areas over higher terrain the precipitation will likely remain as snow.
Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.
Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.
