Forecasted Driving Conditions

New this 2017-18 winter season is 511’s pilot project to include a layer showing “Forecasted Driving Conditions.”

Forecasted Driving Conditions are based on weather forecasts and are independent of reported road conditions. Forecasted Driving Conditions are identified as “good”, “fair” or “poor” based on wind speed, rain, snow, and temperature. Forecasts are generated in four, three-hour timeframes (0-3, 3-6, 6-9, 9-12 hours) up to 12 hours ahead.

In addition to Forecasted Driving Conditions, the ministry provides Reported Road Conditions, traffic cameras, and weather cameras to assist drivers in planning their travel during the winter.

Ontario 511 endeavours to provide accurate, up-to-date information, however, Forecasted Driving Conditions are a prediction. Actual driving conditions may differ on occasion.
