Extreme cold to follow southern County snowmageddon

A day of snow squalls made it look a lot like winter in the County Tuesday. While total snowfall amounts are variable, Environment Canada said up to 40 cm possible in southern parts of the County before the snow squalls shift out of the region after midnight.

The entire Quinte area is warned to brace itself for a cold snap. Environment Canada has issued a wind chill warning for the region for Tuesday night and Wednesday. Lows expected to reach -13 will feel like -30 with the wind chill.

Southern Prince Edward County residents who left their homes Tuesday morning seeing grass on the lawn were in for a big white shock when they returned home to find up to a foot of snow had fallen – though some residents on the north shore report they received just a dusting.

White out conditions caused poor visibility all day. Emergency crews responded to numerous accidents including one at the intersection of Hwy 62 and Gilead Road about 3 p.m. and another report of a truck that spun out in Hillier and hit a house.
