Alberta Clipper Dumping Snow on Thunder Bay
THUNDER BAY – Weather – Thunder Bay is under a Winter Weather Advisory. An Alberta Clipper is in the process of dumping 15 to 20 cms of snow over the region today and into tonight.
An Alberta clipper will sail across Minnesota tonight and then Lake Superior to near Moosonee by Saturday evening. This well developed weather system has a fairly large area of snow associated with it that extends westward all the way to Montana.
More Snow from Nipigon to Marathon
Latest indications continue to suggest a general 15 cm snowfall for most regions. Locally higher snow amounts of 20 to 25 cm are quite likely over locales along the North Shore of Lake Superior, mainly from just east of Nipigon to the Marathon area.
Driving and Flying Can be impacted
Hazardous winter driving conditions are expected due to accumulating snow on untreated highways. In addition very low visibility in areas of heavier snow and blowing snow in exposed areas are expected.
Motorists should adjust travel plans accordingly and allow much extra time to reach their destination.
For those grabbing a shovel, the snow is fairly light, colder temperatures have at least one benefit.
If you are flying today, it is suggested to check with your airline to see if your flight is on time. Air Canada and Westjet have travel advisories listed on their websites.
