Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Bracebridge - Gravenhurst
  • Huntsville - Baysville
  • Burks Falls – South River
  • Town of Parry Sound - Rosseau - Killbear Park

Environment Canada says that blustery winter weather is on tap for today.

Strong westerly winds gusting to near 70 km/h are expected to whip up any freshly fallen snow today resulting in sudden very low visibility in blowing snow in some areas. A few wind gusts to 80 km/h are possible near Lake Huron, especially over the Bruce Peninsula. Isolated power outages are possible.

Flurries will give 2 to 5 cm of fresh new snow to most areas, with a few locally higher amounts of 5 to 10 cm possible especially over areas east of Georgian Bay.
