Winter Operations Update - Thursday, April 4

This could be it, Ottawa; we just need to get through the next 36 hours. Then the sun will come out, temperatures will be in the double digits, and we can get our spring on!  

Forecast and Conditions

A Snowfall Warning remains in effect for the Ottawa region with 5 to 10 centimetres expected today before tapering off to light snow this afternoon. Wind will be coming in from the east at 40 kilometres per hour and gusting to 60. Travel may be hazardous due to reduced visibility and local blowing snow.

Residents are reminded to exercise caution while using all transportation networks.

Our Response

The Roads and Parking Services team continues to operate 24/7, and supervisors will be monitoring the conditions throughout the day and will deploy resources when necessary. Given the warmer temperatures forecasted over the weekend, there are no plans to clear residential streets.  

Next Steps

The Roads and Parking Services Team will continue to monitor the forecast and the conditions of the transportation network over the next 36 hours and unless the forecast changes significantly, this will serve as the operational update for this spring storm. 

We appreciate your patience as we navigate responding to this weather event and our spring operations.

Please continue to travel with care today.
