Winter storm warning in effect for:

  • Marathon – Schreiber
  • Nipigon – Rossport

Hazardous winter conditions expected Saturday morning through the evening.

Travel is expected to become hazardous due to accumulating snow and poor visibility in snow and blowing snow. Conditions are expected to gradually improve Saturday night into Sunday morning.

Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.
