Bands of lake effect snow over Lake Ontario are shifting northward and will affect areas from near Belleville to Prescott today, including highway 401.
Motorists should be prepared for rapidly deteriorating travel conditions. Hazardous winter driving conditions are possible in bursts of heavy snow which can cause reduced visibility and quick accumulations. Local snowfall accumulations of 5 to 10 cm are possible today.
The lake effect snow may continue through the evening hours and impact the evening commute.
