THUNDER BAY – WEATHER – UPDATED – Environment Canada has issued a Freezing Rain Warning for Thunder Bay.

5:46 AM EST Monday 24 November 2014: Freezing rain warning in effect for:

  • City of Thunder Bay
  • Manitouwadge – Hornepayne

Freezing rain is expected or occurring.

Freezing rain has developed as expected across the regions early this morning. As a deep low pressure area over northern Lower Michigan tracks into Northeastern Ontario, colder air will get pumped in from the north, resulting in the freezing rain changing over to snow this morning. Most regions will receive 5 to 10 cm of snow by the time it comes to an end tonight.

Motorists and pedestrians should exercise caution and allow extra time to reach their destination. Untreated surfaces may be quite icy and slippery.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.

Freezing Rain Warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.
