Travel Advisory today for drivers in Grey, Bruce, Huron

Winter-like weather is causing some travel stress today.

Environment Canada has issued a snow squall watch for Saturday, covering the Bruce Peninsula, southern Bruce County, Owen Sound and northern Grey County.

Bands of lake-effect snow continue to move across parts of Bruce, Grey, and northern Huron and Perth counties.  Visibility is reduced for drivers because of blowing snow and a strong west-northwest wind.

The most intense snow streamers could result in snowfall amounts of 5 – 8 cm. this afternoon.

The wind is expected to weaken through the afternoon.

Roads are slippery and slushy in many parts of our region.    Drivers are reminded to adjust to winter-like conditions.

More light snow is expected into tonight and Sunday.
