Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Kingston and the area, advising of snow amounts totalling 15 cm.

The snow, expected to be heavy at times, is forecasted to begin on Friday morning and continue throughout the day.

“A developing low pressure centre will bring a swath of snow to the region Friday morning through Friday evening. Peak snowfall rates of 2 to 4 cm per hour are possible,” the national weather agency said in the statement, which is in effect for Kingston, Odessa, and Frontenac Islands.

Environment Canada advises drivers to be prepared to adjust their driving with changing road conditions.

“Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance,” the statement reads.
