Snow continues across portions of northwestern Ontario. However, the heaviest band is near and to the north of Lake Superior. Snow  continues elsewhere, but is noticeably lighter with only 2 to 4 more 
centimetres expected overnight. Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 20 centimetres will be likely by Thursday morning. Locally 15 cm of snow has already been reported in some locales. Motorists should be 
prepared for hazardous winter driving conditions as a result of poor visibility in heavier snow and accumulating snow, and adjust their travel plans accordingly. Periods of light snow will linger on 
Thursday with another 2 to 4 centimetres of snow possible.

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.
