Thunder Bay – WEATHER – We have weather contrasts across the region today

There are freezing rain warnings in effect for Peawanuck and Washaho Cree Nation in Ontario’s Far North. There are heat advisories in the form of a special weather statement for all of Southern Manitoba right up to the provincial boundary.

It is hard to say if the Ontario order to close the border to all but essential travel has the hot weather held up.

As the provincial stay-at-home order and lockdown continues, what we are doing in our region is keeping the COVID-19 numbers down. We have to keep doing it to ensure that those numbers stay down.

On a personal level, we are expecting warm weather in the western regions of the province today.

Take the time to get outside and enjoy and gather up some natural vitamin d. Practice extra kindness and care to those in your social bubble.

You can do it! Remember, “You’re Beautiful”.
