Though the snowfall warning has ended for Ottawa, spring is sure coming in like a tortoise with about 15 centimetres of snow still expected for Ottawa.
Winds reached 40 kilometres an hour, as well, creating low visibility on the roads as well as blowing snow. The visibility was only 200 metres or less at some points.
Well... after close to 10cm (At the airport) we've snuck just above 0C in Ottawa. Another flurry possible as the cold nudges in this eve.— Ian Black (@BlacksWeather) March 22, 2014
The snow was heavy at times with three to five centimetres falling per hour, which increased the accumulation even though the snow did not last for a long period of time.
The weather forecast also called for flurries on Saturday night in Ottawa.
The City of Ottawa also issued a parking ban for Saturday night from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. Only those vehicles with parking permits are allowed to park on city streets.
