Significant Weather Event Declared

Grey Bruce | by Claire McCormack  

Bruce, Grey & the City of Owen Sound have declared a significant weather event.

Both Bruce and Grey counties as well as the City of Owen Sound have declared a significant weather event.

Environment Canada is calling for snow squalls and 15 cms of snow today, followed by ten cms more flurries and squalls tonight.

Five more cms of snow and squalls are expected on Saturday.

Given the predicted heavy snowfall and poor visibility, Bruce County says it may take longer than usual to clear roads. The county is asking drivers to be cautious when traveling on county roads.

Meanwhile, Grey County also expects the weather will have the same effect on its roads.

It notes, the declaration of a significant weather event isn't notice of a reduced level of service or a road closure.

The county says it is merely to warn people to be cautious as it may take longer than usual to bring the roads back to optimal conditions.

The city of Owen Sound is issuing the same warning, noting "City staff are working 24/7 to ensure public safety."
