Storm gains momentum to add to the record snowfall in Agassiz and Harrison

Storm warning in effect for the communities of Agassiz and Harrison




The winter weather continues to hit the communities of Agassiz and Harrison as fierce winds and sub zero temperatures persist on Wednesday afternoon, wreaking havoc on pedestrians and motorists, who are brave enough to venture into the elements.

 

A winter storm warning is in effect for both communities, who are beginning to look as though they are in the pre stages of an ice age after the record snowfall that saw almost 60 cm of snow in the past few days.

Overcast weather can be expected for this afternoon and into the evening, along with 2 to 4 cm of snow, with a high of minus three and an expected snowfall of anywhere between 15 cm and 25 cm in both communities overnight according to Environment Canada.

Freezing rain is on the horizon for tomorrow, so be careful out there with above zero temperatures that could turn this week’s snowfall into a skating rink on the walkways and roadways.

Public works continue their tireless efforts to keep the roads on the up and up as community members help one another to clear walkways and dig cars out of precarious snow drifts.
