Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement with heavy snow and freezing rain for the Peterborough area.
Significant snowfall is expected to begin Sunday (Nov. 22) afternoon, with accumulations of 10 to 15 centimetres before tapering off Monday (Nov. 23) morning. Brief with heavy snow and freezing rain will be possible overnight.
Wind gusts up to 40 kilometres per hour are expected in the afternoon with a potential wind chill of minus eight overnight.
Periods of snow and/or rain are expected for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Travel is expected to be impacted due to moderate to heavy snow. Motorists should be prepared for winter weather driving conditions.
The storm is a result of a Colorado low that will track from Ohio towards the St. Lawrence River Sunday into Monday.
There is still some uncertainty in model guidance as to the exact track of the low and the axis of heaviest snow. Environment Canada will continue to monitor the situation and update special weather statements as newer data becomes available.
Snowfall warnings may be required as the event draws closer.
