THUNDER BAY – WEATHER – The weather system tracking across Northwestern Ontario is still looking at dumping snow across the city of Thunder Bay and into Nipigon, and onto Wawa.
The system is looking large and will cover a large part of Ontario as it comes into Canada.
What is worrisome about this system is that as it goes through, it will turn to rain, which could impact travel, and possibly cause power outages.
