CHESTERVILLE — Environment Canada advises that a combination of flurries and strong winds will cut visibility for the travelling public until the wind gradually dies down through the day.

Predicted gusts of 60 to 80 km/h are underway, whipping fresh snow across roads in exposed areas. Snowfall accumulations are expected to be light.

The federal agency warns that “travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations.”
