Thunder Bay – WEATHER – There are weather advisories for the Far North in Ontario this morning. Old Man Winter seems determined to try hard to hang on.
The Ontario Stay-at-Home Order continues to be in effect.
While there is snow for the far north, for Western Ontario the forecast for the next several days is far more promising. Sunny skies are headed our way through the weekend. This will allow us all the opportunity to get outside, to enjoy some fresh air and natural vitamin D. Take the time to go for a walk, enjoy the walking or biking trails, get some needed exercise and continue to practice kindness and social distancing.
It is really important to focus on being kind and respectful to each other, and especially to your family and members of your social bubble. You can do this, remember “You’re Beautiful”.
