DISTRICT (Staff) – Environment Canada is warning of continuing inclement weather in the Temiskaming area:
At 9:21 a.m. Monday, it warned of a major winter storm in the Englehart-Kirkland Lake areas:
Hazardous winter conditions are expected.
Major winter storm continues today into this evening.
Ice pellets mixed at times with freezing rain will change to snow towards noon. Snow heavy at times will persist into this evening then slowly start to ease off after midnight.
Many areas will receive another five centimetres of ice pellets, then an additional 10 centimetres of snow, bringing total snow and ice pellet accumulation of 20 to 25 centimetres by midnight.
The combination of ice pellets, heavy snow and strong winds will result in hazardous travel conditions today and tonight.
The snow will start to taper off overnight then become light and intermittent Tuesday as the winter storm moves away into Quebec.
Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.
Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.
At 9:26 a.m. Monday, it issued a freezing rain warning for the New Liskeard-Temagami areas.
