The Snow Fall Warning has ended for Ottawa; however, there is still more snow in the forecast, and the high winds are creating icy conditions on our roads.
It looks like 20-25 cms all told. We’ll see if it sticks. The winds will begin to die down tomorrow and we’ll see some gradual clearing.
The 401 is especially challenging right now. We’ve been getting reports all afternoon of poor conditions down that way — especially in the Brockville area.
Avoid travelling when at all possible, and if you have to, please make adjustments in your driving habits.
I was on the EB 401 last night and it seemed to me that many had yet to realize just how icy the roads were.
And inevitably…I saw a few of those same people in the ditch later on.
