Areas between the Manitoba border and Lake Nipigon will have received a total of 5 to 10 centimetres of snow by the time the snow tapers Off later today.However as the system gains more moisture regions to the north of the upper Great Lakes may see up to 15 centimetres of snow today and additional amounts tonight. Snowfall warnings have been issued for these affected regions. The snow will begin in the rest of Northeastern Ontario later today.
These areas can expect to see a storm total of 10 to 15 cm by the time the snow ends on Tuesday.
For the Nipigon and Geraldton regions, a snowfall warning has been issued. A low pressure system over South Dakota this morning will move south of the upper Great Lakes tonight. Snow associated with this system has already begun over Northwestern Ontario and will Progress eastward today. Added moisture in the south-southwesterly flow off of Lake Superior will help to enhance the snowfall over regions from Terrace Bay to Wawa and extending inland through the Geraldton region. Additionally, a northeast to southwest trough extending into Northern Ontario from this low will strengthen as it moves eastward. This trough will help to further enhance snowfall amounts.
As a result, regions to the northeast of Lake Superior may see up to 20 centimetres of snow by the time the snow tapers off tonight.
