The first big winter storm of 2023 is bearing down on southern Ontario.
In Kingston, the first signs of the expected heavy snowfall started around noon Wednesday.
Global News meteorologist Anthony Farnell expects the snow to continue overnight and into Thursday.
“Those snowfall rates of nearly two to four centimetres an hour, when you get that type of snow, snowplows have trouble keeping up. So the roads are going to become quite slick,” said Farnell.
Snowplows in Kingston were out early preparing for the deluge of snow.
Anti-ice operations including salting the roads began Tuesday night, according to Troy Stubinski, the operations manager for Kingston’s public works department.
