Weather Update – Winter Storm to Miss Thunder Bay

Weather Update

THUNDER BAY – WEATHER – Thunder Bay is expected to get about five centimeters of snow with blowing winds today. This is less than the original prediction from Environment Canada of as much as ten centimeters of snow.

The winter storm which was tracking toward our region has passed to the east and there is a winter storm warning out for the eastern parts of Lake Superior.

5:11 AM EST Wednesday 27 November 2019
Winter storm warning in effect for:

  • Wawa – Pukaskwa Park
  • White River – Dubreuilville

A winter storm with heavy snow and blowing snow is expected today.

Snow is expected to move in from the south this morning and continue into this evening. Northeasterly winds gusting to 60 km/h will also produce blowing snow in exposed areas.

Snowfall amounts near 15 cm are likely in the Wawa area and in regions near Lake Superior. Lesser snow amounts, perhaps near 5 cm are expected in areas northwest of White River which will be on the northern edge of this winter storm.

Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.
