GREENSTONE – If travel eastward on the Trans-Canada Highway along the north shore of Lake Superior is in your plans today, you might wish to reconsider. There is a snowfall warning in effect. Environment Canada says, “Periods of snow will continue today and tonight associated with a large and strong low pressure area moving toward Northern Ontario. The snow is forecast to re-intensify today with a further 15 to 20 cm expected by Tuesday morning. Strong northerly winds will also develop this afternoon and evening over regions north of Lake Superior, resulting in blowing snow and associated poor visibilities. Hazardous winter travelling conditions can be expected throughout the regions due to the snow and blowing snow”.
As of 7AM this morning, 20 to 30 cm of snow have been measured in the Geraldton to Nagagami areas.
The snowfall will gradually taper off from southwest to northeast on Tuesday.
