THUNDER BAY – Don’t put that snow shovel away just yet. According to Environment Canada, “A low pressure system is currently developing over Eastern Kansas and is expected to move through the Great Lakes region this weekend. The current forecast track of the system indicates that areas north of Lake Superior could receive significant snow amounts. The snow will start in the Thunder Bay area overnight into Saturday and for the rest of the regions Saturday morning.
The bulk of the snow will fall Saturday for most regions and will be in the range of 10 to 15 cm. For the regions near Thunder Bay the snow will taper off
Saturday night and the regions north and east of Lake Superior will taper off Sunday morning.
The southern parts of Kapuskasing and Timmins regions, including these cities, are expected to receive about 2 to 5 cm of snow before changing over to rain. However Fraserdale and Little Abitibi are likely to receive 10 to 15 cm with this event.
The latest indications are that snow amounts of 10 to 15 cm will fall in 12 to 18 hours. This is less than the warning criteria which is snow amounts of 15 cm or more in 12 hours or less”.
