Special weather statement for Waterloo Region 12/20/17

December 20, 2017

Snow is forecast to begin falling late Thursday afternoon with general snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm by the time the snow begins to taper off Friday morning.

Motorists should be prepared for reductions to visibility and poor winter travelling conditions Thursday evening into Friday. The Friday morning commute could be particularly slow and messy.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions as untreated surfaces such as roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.cpio-tempetes-ospc-storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
