THUNDER BAY – Winter is clinging on to Thunder Bay. Outside streets and sidewalks are getting another coating of the white stuff. There are no weather warnings in effect for Thunder Bay, but the snow is falling.

Environment Canada has issued statements for Nipigon to Wawa however. Another low pressure area over Wisconsin early this morning is expected to follow a track across Eastern Lake Superior and Northeastern Ontario to near Moosonee by tonight.

Winter Weather continues

Downtown Sidewalks
Be careful walking today. In many places sidewalks are icy and the snow isn’t helping

Snowfall Warning in Effect

Snow in advance of this low is quickly spreading across the warned regions. A narrow band of heavy snow will be associated with this low, with total snowfall amounts of 15 to 20 cm expected by this evening.

The communities of Wawa and Kapuskasing will be close enough to milder air near the track of this low which will result in precipitation being in the form of rain or a rain-wet snow mix. As a result, snowfall amounts in these communities will amount to only a few centimetres at most.

Driving conditions will deteriorate quickly once the snow begins. Low visibility in areas of heavier snow and accumulating snow will result in hazardous winter driving conditions. Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destination.
