Thunder Bay – Weather – If you ever think climate change isn’t happening, consider that the wide swings in our weather are a solid indication that it is real.

Only a few days ago, we were setting record high temperatures. This morning there are frost advisories in parts of the region.

Frost advisory in effect for:

  • Armstrong – Auden – Wabakimi Park
  • Manitouwadge – Hornepayne
  • Nakina – Aroland – Pagwa
  • Upsala – Raith

Frost may damage some crops in frost-prone areas.

With clear and calm conditions prevailing early this morning some areas are expected to reach a minimum temperature around the zero degree Celsius mark. If any frost were to form this morning it should be brief and patchy as temperatures should recover relatively quickly after sunrise.

There are also air quality alerts in parts of the region over the smoke from forest fires.
