CORNWALL, Ontario – The brief reprieve from winter that Cornwall and the surrounding area has experienced seems to be over. The snow is back and with it, overnight parking restrictions.

Tommy Sauve, the City of Cornwall’s Safety, Training and Operations Supervisor posted on the City of Cornwall Facebook page that overnight parking restrictions would be in place for Tuesday and Wednesday.

“With the snowfall in the forecast expected to reach upwards of 10 to 20cm Tuesday and Wednesday overnight, parking on any roadway between the overnight hours of 1 a.m. – 7 a.m. is prohibited for Tuesday, March 13 and Wednesday, March 14, 2018” wrote Sauve on Facebook. “Although this latest weather forecast may change we are taking this approach ahead of time as a precaution.”

The snow is forecasted to start of slow on Monday with only a couple of centimeters falling, but will pick-up on Tuesday and Wednesday with up to 10cm falling each day.

Winter is returning thanks to a strong nor’easter pushing west from Atlantic Canada.

It is hard to say how long this snow will stay around for though. Thursday’s high is forecasted as being plus 3 degrees with the temperature staying above or near zero for the next two weeks.
