Winter Weather Travel Advisory for tonight
A cold front moving across northern Ontario tonight has brought southerly winds over lake Superior ahead of the front that has enhanced the snowfall amounts.
Heavy bursts of snow and significantly reduced visibilities at times can be expected tonight. Travel along Highway 17 during this time may be hazardous.
A total snowfall accumulation of 10 to 15 cm is possible by Saturday morning. Areas closer to the lake shore where the temperature is slightly above the freezing mark may accumulate less snow than areas further inland.
