SNOW ALERT – Winter to Hit Cornwall Area Hard Monday Night into Tuesday DECEMBER 12, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – Here comes the snow!  Expect as many as 20cm of snowfall between Monday night and Wednesday morning as temps stay cold with a high tonight of only -10c before the snow really picks up.

Wednesday and Thursday will see lows of near -20c!   Dress warm, drive safe, and please remember that pets get cold too!

Expect poor road conditions and too many morons who don’t know how to drive in the snow.

Temperatures will warm up by the weekend, but another big blast of snow is expected for Saturday and Sunday.

Stay tuned to CFN and we’ll update with any school bus cancellations.

  1. We live in Canada. It snows. Get used to it. This isn’t a new phenomenon.

  2. Some years ago back in the mid 90s era I was walking on Brookdale Avenue with my son who was a teenager at that time. It was at Christmas time and loaded with snow. I couldn’t tell the ditch from the sidewalk and fell into the ditch back then and my son on the sidewalk roaring with laughter and it was -45°C and I was frozen stiff. I went into IGA back then looking like a snowman.

  3. It snowed a great deal overnight here in Ottawa and the plows were out all night and one plow went by and shook the building like an earthquake and hubby woke up at 2 a.m. in a not so good a mood. That sure rattled his cage. LOL LOL. My son went out to Tim Hortons early this morning and he said the drivers couldn’t tell one area of the road from the other and mighty slippery and he had to honk.
