Winter Storm Smacks Grey Bruce

Grey Bruce | by Matt Hermiz  

Heavy snow, ice pellets and freezing rain causes dangerous travel conditions

Mother Nature is flexing her might as a winter storm is walloping Grey Bruce with heavy snow, freezing rain and ice pellets.

Environment Canada warns heavy snow and blowing snow will continue through the evening with snowfall amounts between 30-45 centimetres by tonight.

As of 4 p.m., the national weather service says 36 centimetres has already fallen at Wiarton.

Tomorrow, weather forecasters say freezing rain will hit the region before changing to rain Sunday evening.

Environment Canada says significant ice build up is possible Sunday and also warns of potential power outages due to ice, plus strong and gusty winds.

Poor driving conditions are presently occurring throughout the region and likely to continue as the storm worsens.

Visibility will be near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.

Environment Canada advises avoiding any non-essential travel.
