Inclement weather prompts bus cancellations throughout much of the Kingston area
School buses in most of the Tri-Board region were cancelled Wednesday after Environment Canada issued a winter weather travel advisory. Schools remain open.
Environment Canada has an advisory in place for Kingston, Odessa, Frontenac Islands, Napanee, Consecon, Picton and Sandbanks Park. Tri-Board buses were cancelled Wednesday for every area except in North Hastings.
According to Environment Canada, ice pellets are expected to begin over the area on Wednesday morning. A risk of freezing rain or freezing drizzle will accompany the ice pellets. Ice pellet accumulations of 2-4 cm are expected before the precipitation changes to freezing drizzle Wednesday evening or overnight.
The weather has prompted a number of school-related cancellations, and some extra-curricular activities have been postponed.
