Visitors to Canada’s largest city can expect to be a little chilly after the arrival of cold fronts, but a couple of new Canadian attractions will offer a warm welcome.
Gatlinberg is the destination of choice for some of the world’s most popular attractions, but the city’s attractions are also being targeted by a variety of cold-weather threats.
The National Capital Commission issued a travel advisory Tuesday that warns against “unlikely” events, including:• In the summer, winds of 40-60 kph can be expected to gust to 40 kph.• Snowfall of 6 to 8 inches is possible.• In mid-November, the city may experience more than one inch of snowfall.• Wind gusts up to 65 kph will be possible.
The city has said the risk of being stranded on the city by cold fronts is “minimal.”
But the advisory warns that the threat could increase if there are any additional cold fronts.
The advisory does not specifically mention Gatlinburg by name, but many residents are already preparing for a potential cold front.
