Special weather statement for March 15: Alerts in effect

Issued at 05:07 Wednesday 15 March 2017
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the Niagara Peninsula.

Periods of snow will continue today across most of the Niagara Peninsula, accompanied by strong and gusty northwesterly winds. Poor winter driving conditions are expected today due to reduced visibility at times in blowing snow. Untreated roads may be snow covered and slippery.

Staff and students should plan for extra time to reach their destination today.

Travel conditions will slowly improve beginning this afternoon as the snow tapers off to scattered flurries.

Together, our Facilities Maintenance staff and our winter service provider are continually working to plow and salt walkways and parking lots as the winter weather continues.

Staff and students are reminded to drive and walk according to road, sidewalk and winter weather conditions, and to wear proper footwear and dress appropriately.

As winter maintenance equipment is operating during school hours, please ensure that you stay a safe distance away where possible.

Please continue to monitor alerts issued by Niagara College and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
