Storm Leaves Area

Regional | by Bayshore News Staff  

Winds, Snow make for hazardous driving today, but Roads re-open in the area.

It was a morning of white knuckle driving in our region -- especially around Collingwood to Meaford and in the Kincardine area.

Snowsqualls and blowing snow reduced visibility and created treacherous driving conditions.

Highway 26 has now been reopened from Meaford to Thornbury and to Grey Road 21.

Highway 21 from Kincardine south to Amberley has also been re-opened.

A snowsquall warning has now been lifted, as the forecast is calling for flurries but the winds will now die down.

Some parts of our area got as much as 35 centimetres of snow.

Clearview Township Deputy Director of Public Works, Steve Sage, says Stayner and Creemore were the worst hit areas in the township.

Bayshore Broadcasting Weather Specialist John Wilson and Environment Canada say some areas will see another 15 centimetres of snow by the end of the day.

The cold is also causing problems, with the temperature staying below minus 13 today, and a windchill of more than minus 25.

Big changes are on the way, weather-wise.

By the end of the week, we could see temperatures in the plus 3 range.
