With the Winter Storm Warning we have currently in effect which states;
11:30 AM EDT Monday 13 March 2017
Winter storm warning in effect for:
- Brantford – County of Brant
Hazardous winter conditions are expected.
Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are expected by Tuesday night.
Snow has developed over the regions this morning and continue into Tuesday night. The heaviest snow is expected to fall through the overnight hours into Tuesday morning.
Northeast winds gusting to 60 km/h are also expected this evening into Tuesday resulting in widespread blowing snow. Travel conditions will become hazardous as a result of snow and blowing snow.
Snow will taper to scattered flurries Tuesday night as the low pressure system moves east.
Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.
The question of what we should be prepared for might be asked. And while we should certainly plan our daily commutes accordingly perhaps we should be glad we won’t all have to deal with what a recent New York State resident did!
A completely frozen house! You can even see video of it here!
