DRYDEN – WEATHER – Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the western part of Northwestern Ontario. The weather service is stating that snowfall, with total amounts of about 15 cm can be expected.
Snowfall warning in effect for:
- Dryden – Vermilion Bay
- Ignace – English River
- Kenora – Grassy Narrows – Whitedog
Total snowfall amounts near 15 cm expected by Thursday evening.
For the latest road conditions call 511. As the snow hits make a decision about highways travel if the trip is absolutely needed, or not.
Snow combined with strong northeasterly winds of 40 to 70 km/h may create hazardous driving conditions due to low visibilities in snow and blowing snow. The strong wind accompanying any wet snow accumulation on trees could also result in power outages across portions of the region.
The snow will begin to taper off Thursday night.
This wintery weather is attributed to an Alberta Clipper that is forecast to track into northern Minnesota on Thursday.
