Storm Could Drop Up To 25 CM of Snow
THUNDER BAY – WEATHER – Environment Canada is calling for snowfall lasting until late afternoon on Friday. The weather service advises “An approaching low pressure system will bring a late season snowfall to areas near Lake Superior tonight and Friday”.
Weather Warnings are in effect for Thunder Bay, Nipigon, Red Rock, Marathon and along the North Shore of Lake Superior.
Snow at times heavy will continue into Friday morning. Snow should taper off Friday afternoon. A total snowfall accumulation of 15 to 25 centimetres appears likely.
Web cams and reports over Northeast Minnesota show snow has become heavy at times and is accumulating.
Driving conditions will quickly deteriorate tonight after the snow arrives.
Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required, so stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio. Email reports of severe weather to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.
