The special weather statement will affect:

  • Barry’s Bay – Killaloe
  • Petawawa – Pembroke – Cobden

They are saying that strong and gusty west to southwest winds will be coming today and blowing snow is also possible.

Strong southwest winds with gusts to 80 km/h will start to slowly diminish this afternoon.

These winds are strong enough to cause minor tree damage and a few local power outages. Reduced visibility in blowing snow is also possible today.
