Winter Travel Advisory In Effect

Posted: 2022-01-18 17:10:06 By: thebay

A winter weather advisory is in effect for Muskoka & Almaguin Highlands for this evening into Wednesday.

Environment Canada is warning of snow, heavy at times, with accumulations of 7 to 14 cm and the risk of freezing drizzle.

Snow will develop this evening and will taper to flurries Wednesday morning. Through Wednesday morning, there will also be the risk for freezing drizzle before temperatures moderate in the early afternoon. A sharp cold front will push through the region late Wednesday afternoon which will cause temperatures to abruptly drop back below freezing. The combination of accumulating snow, freezing drizzle, and falling temperatures late Wednesday afternoon will make for hazardous road conditions, particularly for untreated surfaces.

Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions and adjust travel plans accordingly. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.
