Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning for Lanark County on the afternoon of Tuesday, April 2.

Between 15 and 30 cm of snow is expected between Wednesday and Thursday of this week.

Snow is expected to fall at peak rates of 2 to 4 cm per hour, resulting in reduced visibility in areas of heavier snow.

Rain is expected to move into the region later tonight or early Wednesday morning, and slowly transition to snow as the day progresses. With temperatures being very close to the freezing mark, the snow is expected to be very heavy and wet in nature. Environment Canada says local utility outages are possible as a result, and rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

As of 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, special weather statements were also in effect for Leeds and Grenville and Quinte areas regarding the same system, but no snowfall warning was issues.

Hometownist will continue to provide updates as they are made available.
