THUNDER BAY – Environment Canada has issued snowfall warnings and a special weather statement for much of Northwestern Ontario. 

The weather is calling for snow for Sioux Lookout, and across the north.

Snow is expected to begin this morning and continue into this evening. Total snowfall amounts of 15 cm are expected by tonight. It will be much later for Nakina areas before rain changing to snow late this evening. Total snowfall amounts of 15 cm are forecast for them by midday Monday. Local blowing snow is also possible with this system resulting in reduced visibilities in exposed areas. The snow will start to taper off from west to east tonight as the system moves toward Quebec.

      City of Thunder Bay
      Kenora - Nestor Falls

Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions from low visibility in heavy snow and accumulating snow on untreated roads.

A low pressure system from Colorado is forecast to intensify as it approaches Lake Superior later today. This system is expected to bring significant snowfall to parts of Northwestern Ontario and significant rainfall later today and strong winds tonight to parts of Northeastern Ontario. The weather system will move into Northwestern Quebec on Monday.
