Snow was reducing visibility and increasing the number of accidents on the roads this week as more than 20 cm fell across the southern part of Ontario.

According to Windsor Police, who have been urging caution, 45 snow-related accidents took place on Wednesday.

Environment Canada was forecasting the snow could continue Friday and taper off somewhere around midnight.

Gary Archibald, meteorologist at CTV Windsor, said the snow was moving further east of southwestern Ontario.

“Environment Canada always put out watches and warnings of weather that could be of danger to the public. They always try to give as much advance notice as possible,” said Archibald.

“There are icy patches on the roadways and it has become dangerous to commute.”

The roads are bad and will continue to get worse. Motorists are advised to adjust travel plans and be extra cautious when planning a trip.
