Weather AlertTHUNDER BAY – WEATHER – Environment Canada has updated the Winter Storm Warning which is in effect for the City of Thunder Bay, Superior West, and the Northshore of Lake Superior.

Winter storm warning in effect for:

  • City of Thunder Bay

A winter storm is expected overnight into Monday.

A developing low-pressure system is expected to track over Northwestern Ontario on Monday. Snow with this system will begin this evening and become heavy overnight. The snow will taper off by Monday evening.

Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are likely by Monday evening. Strong southeast winds gusting up to 60 km/h will also develop Monday morning and combine with the freshly fallen snow to produce local blowing snow.

At this point, it appears that the worst conditions are most likely Monday morning and early afternoon. Snowfall rates of several centimetres per hour are possible at times.

Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
