Bruce County and the Town of Saugeen Shores have declared the significant weather event has ended.

All roads in Grey and Bruce are now open including Highway 21.

Officials say caution should still be observed as regular maintenance activities are still occurring to return county roads, highways and sidewalks to a state of repair.

At the height of the snowy weather event which caused whiteout conditions, roads all over Bruce and Grey Counties were closed including all roads on the Bruce Peninsula at one point. Buses were cancelled and schools were closed throughout the area, many businesses and organizations were shut down for much of Thursday.

An Extreme Cold Warning is still in place for Owen Sound, Blue Mountains & Northern Grey County as well as Saugeen Shores, Kincardine and Southern Bruce County.

Environment Canada says the high could reach 4 degrees on Sunday and 5 degrees on Monday.
