Thunder Bay Weather – If you enjoyed the warmer weather of the past couple of days, get set for a trip back to the clouds. The old adage, “April showers bring May flowers” may not have included snow, but parts of the region are headed back to snow flurries or rain over the coming days. There are no weather alerts or weather warnings in effect, just wet weather for many parts of the region.

As we continue to live under the Ontario Stay-at-Home Order, fighting COVID-19, remember to get outside for fresh air, get some exercise, take the kids for a walk.

Practice kindness and respect toward one another. You got this, “You’re Beautiful”.
