Mother Nature is once again causing major problems across southwestern and mid-western Ontario.
Although, only 5 to 10 cm of snow has actually fallen, the real issue Saturday morning were the high winds, resulting in blowing snow and poor visibility.
Environment Canada has issued a blowing snow warning for London-Middlesex, Oxford-Brant, Huron-Perth and Grey-Bruce.
This has resulted in numerous road closures across the region including:
- All roads in Huron and Bruce County
- Highway 21 - Kincardine to Port Elgin in both directions.
- Highway 9 - Kincardine to Walkerton in both directions
- Bruce County Road # 15 - Tiverton (King Street) to Inverhuron (Albert Rd) in both directions
- Bruce County Road 86 - Highway 21 (Amberley) to London Rd (Wingham) in both directions
- Highway 6 - Wiarton to Tobermory
Unfortunately, we're not out of the woods just yet.
Roughly another 5 to 10 cm is expected to fall Sunday with gusty winds, creating more dangerous conditions on area roads.
