Due to the significant winter storm developing, King Township is declaring a significant weather event advisory.
Given the volumes of snow projected it will be difficult to keep all roads and intersections continuously cleared of snow over the next 12 hours. Caution is advised at intersections and on back roads, particularly those with gravel surfaces. Residents are asked to drive according to the weather conditions. Sidewalks and parking lots may be snow covered or slippery.
Snowfall with total amounts of 15 to 25 cm is expected.
Heavy snow is expected to move into the area this evening into Tuesday morning with snowfall accumulations near 15 cm, possibly reaching 20 to 25 cm in some places.
Strong winds gusting up to 50 km/h are expected to produce local blowing snow from this evening into Tuesday afternoon in some places.
Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
We thank residents for their patience as we work as quickly as possible to clear roads and sidewalks.
Please assist our work crews by refraining from on-street parking to enable plows to go down the street and not pushing or blowing snow onto the roadways and streets.
This significant weather event designation will continue through the night, with an update expected Tuesday morning.
