Another day, another snow day for area students.

If you managed to dig out from yesterday's snow, you can look forward to freezing rain today, when,

of course, school bus transportation has been cancelled for the fourth consecutive day.

Driving is an adventure again as snow has given way to black ice and slush.

And some parking lots are like rinks.

But we can anticipate a return to lower temperatures later today.

Snow day 3

Make it Snow Day Number 3 this week as Old Man Winter decided to give us another helping of snow last night and today.

We can look forward to milder temperatures, and, of course, freezing rain later today, apparently.

Take it easy out there, folks.

How bad is it? A snowplow was in the ditch on the 417 near St-Isidore earlier this morning.

School bus service has been cancelled throughout rural Eastern Ontario as snow and blowing snow have made driving treacherous.

Meanwhile, people continue to dig out from the weekend storm.

Area roads are covered with packed snow.

Despite a Friday night storm, the tenth edition of Beau's Oktoberfest in Vankleek Hill attracted 17,000 who helped raise $94,323 for non-profit organizations, bringing the total raised in 10 years to $711,212.

"Our 10th edition of Oktoberfest had some exhilarating highs and some extreme-weather-related challenges," notes Beau's co-founder Steve Beauchesne. "We kept our guests safe during the storm and made the most of a difficult situation Friday, and on Saturday when the sky cleared we had an amazing time and did a lot of good. I'm looking forward to what the next 10 years of Oktoberfest will bring."

Expect windy weather this afternoon and evening, Environment Canada warns.

Strong southwesterly wind gusts of 70 to 80 km/h are expected to develop this afternoon and early this evening, with higher wind gusts likely in thunderstorms. These strong winds are associated with a cold front that will track over the area late this afternoon and early this evening.

Additionally, northwest winds gusting to 60 or 70 km/h are also expected this evening after the cold front passes. Winds will then diminish overnight.
Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage.
