All of Niagara Region will turn into ice rink overnight

After a two-day snow storm – the like of which Niagara Region hasn’t seen in over two decades – today’s +4C throughout the region may seem like a welcome break.

By tomorrow, it will become far less welcome. Temperatures throughout Niagara will plunge well below freezing tonight (January 19) and turn the entire region into one huge ice rink.

Environment Canada had issued a warning over the temperature drop in the region. “Above freezing temperatures have spread across southern Ontario this morning and highs today are expected to be in the low to mid single digits. Late this afternoon, a cold front will push through the region which will cause temperatures to abruptly drop below freezing in time for the evening commute.”

“Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways, and parking lots may become icy and slippery.”

After the Niagara Student Transportation Services cancelled all bus service to both the District School Board of Niagara and Niagara Catholic District School Board today, parents can likely expect more of the same tomorrow.
