A Hard Canadian Winter's Snow Gonna Fall On Peterborough Tuesday Through Wednesday

A winter storm watch by Environment Canada is in effect for Peterborough and area, with snowfall amounts of 25 to 35 cm projected—along with blowing snow—Tuesday through Wednesday.

All that snow will begin Tuesday morning. Strong easterly winds will gust up to 70 km/h, causing reduced visibility in blowing snow. Total snowfall amounts of 25 to 35 cm are likely before the snow tapers off during the day Wednesday.

This snow is associated with a Colorado low that will cross Southern Ontario Tuesday and Wednesday, and you are advised to avoid travel if possible due to possible hazardous road conditions.

Of course, whatever the case, we have better plows now then we had back in the day to clear those roads. Here's an old school snow sweeper (see more old plow pictures here)…
