Despite the fact that we’re still less than two months from the official start of winter, we received our first taste of snow and sleet in the Quinte region Saturday.
The snow started to fall late yesterday afternoon, which caused several accidents in the area, with vehicles spinning out and leaving the road.
One of the major accidents occurred on the westbound 401 near Wallbridge Loyalist Road around 5:30 p.m. A single vehicle rollover sent one man to Trenton Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Injuries of all the vehicle occupants involved in accidents yesterday are not believed to be serious.
A total of 3.2 cm of accumulation was recorded at CFB Trenton yesterday, which ties a snowfall record set in 2016.
The snow will not be around long however, as a warming trend is expected this week.
Sunday’s high is expected to be plus 5 degrees, with highs of 11 and 12 forecast for mid-week.
