Environment Canada has issued a winter storm warning beginning the evening of Thursday, March 1 with heavy and blowing snow.

While evening classes and activities will run as scheduled on Thursday, any potential closures for Friday will be posted to

Rain is expected to develop on Thursday afternoon, which is expected to change to snow by evening which will continue through the night and may fall heavily at times. Wind gusts to 60 km/h will also result in areas of blowing snow giving very poor visibility at times at night and into the Friday morning. Travel is not advised for Thursday night.

Total snowfall accumulations of 15 to 30 cm are expected by the time the snow tapers off late Friday morning.  Although the worst of the conditions are expected Thursday night, the Friday morning commute will likely be significantly impacted.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Please take extra care when travelling to and from our campuses and allow extra time as necessary. Be aware of snow clearing equipment on campus and exercise caution when walking on snow-covered or icy surfaces, especially on slopes and stairs.

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