Kitchener Daily News

A significant return of winter weather is anticipated for Wednesday across a wide swath of southwestern Ontario, prompting a special weather advisory.

According to Environment Canada, residents in the Waterloo-Wellington region should brace for a rapid temperature plunge as a cold front sweeps through. Weather Specialist Will Aiello of CTV Kitchener warns that the mercury will plummet around midday, with temperatures plummeting approximately 15 degrees. For instance, temperatures could shift from 12°C at noon to -9°C within a span of six hours in Waterloo Region. Even colder conditions are expected further north.

This sudden drop in temperature heightens the risk of slippery roads as icy conditions may develop swiftly. Additionally, strong winds are forecasted for the region, with gusts ranging from 70 to 80 km/h expected throughout the afternoon and evening before gradually subsiding overnight.

Residents along the shores of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay should remain vigilant as snow squalls may develop, further complicating travel and outdoor activities.
