The Snow Storm of 2013 Has Finally Arrived

Web posted on February 08, 2013

After a week of conflicting predictions, the snow storm promised by forecasters hit Guelph late last night and has not stopped snowing since. With predictions of anywhere between 15 to 25 centimeters of snow, The Fountain Pen can say with certainty, and their "highly accurate ruler", that Guelph did in fact get 15 centimeters by 11:00 am this morning.

School buses for all schools, Public, Catholic, French Public and French Catholic are not running today. All schools in Wellington County and Dufferin County will also be closed.

The University of Guelph and Conestoga College have cancelled all daytime and evening classes, exams, and events. Even Guelph Transit is running on reduced routes and expects delays to last all day.

Currently the snow is forecast to stop tonight then turn to blowing snow tomorrow with temperatures dropping to -12 overnight. Both Environment Canada and The Weather network are calling for rain or showers and wet snow to begin on Monday with temperatures to climb to 0.
