January 6th 2014 Snow Storm

Arguably Windsor’s most significant snowfall in years has resulted in more than 20cm of accumulation in some areas, and much higher drifts of snow in areas where brisk winds are blowing.

Across the city, citizens have been ploughing sidewalks and driveways while nearly 50 pieces of equipment work to clear city streets.

Earlier today, the Windsor-Essex Health Unit issued an extreme cold weather alert and stressed the dangers of hypothermia and frostbite.

Air temperatures are expected to fall below -29°C (-20°F) this afternoon and -40°C (-40°F) tonight.

Coupled with a wind chill warning, Tuesday’s forecast will see a temperature of -42°C (-44°F).
