local schools shutdown
It has been a trying week of weather to say the least. There is a winter storm warning in effect for today, but it's not so much the snowfall but the winds. We're expecting 5-to-10 centimetres by this evening, but the winds gusting up to 60 kilometres an hour will cause visibility problems out on the roads.
Officilas are closing the local Francophone schools for the day as well as zones 5-to-9 in Anglophone West, which includes the following areas:
5. Stanley, Boiestown, Doaktown
6. Greater Fredericton Area (including New Maryland, Keswick Ridge, Nashwaak Valley)
7. Oromocto, Geary, Burton, Lincoln, Fredericton Junction
8. Chipman, Minto
9. Cambridge Narrows, Gagetown
