The winter weather has arrived in Waterloo Region.

We are expected to see snow and a lot of it in the next 24 hrs.

OPP want to make sure you are getting where you need to go in one piece and they are out with some winter driving tips.

A great start is tires, having snow tires will give you some extra traction also checking tire pressure is important as tire pressure tends to decrease in colder weather.

OPP and the Ministry of Transportation suggest you travel with an emergency kit that is stocked with blankets, flashlights, candles, flares, some water and to make sure your phone is fully charged well.
