Here we go again. One more time, Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for Ottawa-Gatineau, Renfrew-Pembroke, Smiths Falls-Lanark, Prescott-Russell.
About 10 centimetres of snow is expected for Ottawa-Gatineau. More snow is possible for areas outside of the city. The storm is expected to move in Wednesday, just in time for the afternoon drive home. The snow is expected to change over to rain by early Thursday morning. Be prepared for a slippery drive home on Wednesday.
The statement reads…
A low pressure system from the west is expected to bring a significant April snowfall to the area beginning Wednesday then continuing into Wednesday night. Snow is expected to be heavy at times in some areas. Current indications suggest snowfall accumulation of 5 to 10 cm by Thursday morning.
There is still some uncertainty regarding the exact track of the low which will affect the location of the heaviest snow. Hence, 10 to 15 cm of snow is not completely out of the question in a few localities.
Environment Canada will continue to closely monitor this developing situation and warnings may be issued as the details become more certain. Snow fall warnings are in effect for regions just to the north, where snowfall amounts of 15 cm or more are expected.
Driving conditions are expected to deteriorate quickly after the snow arrives. Motorists should be prepared for a return to hazardous winter driving conditions from accumulating snow and low visibility in heavy snow and adjust travel plans accordingly.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
