Environment Canada has issued a winter weather travel advisory for Greater Sudbury and the vicinity, as well as for Temiskamking Shores.

Sudden and significantly reduced visibility from heavy snow and local blowing snow is expected, so if you need to be out on the road today, drive with extra caution.

Conditions are expected to worsen this afternoon.

“A strong cold front will move through the area producing frontal snow squalls,” the advisory states. “A quick two to four centimetres of snow along with near-zero visibilities at times in blowing snow can be expected with this cold front.”

Motorists are advised to expect hazardous winter driving conditions and should adjust travel plans accordingly. 

“Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.”
