THUNDER BAY – NEWS – The City of Thunder Bay experienced a significant snowfall overnight with areas in the city receiving approximately 10-15 cm of snow and strong winds which created drifting in some areas.

Road Plowing: Road crews started plowing arterial and collector streets at 2 am this morning and will continue to clear these roadways throughout the day and again early tomorrow morning. Progress is slow due to continued inclement weather during the night as well as some equipment breakdowns. Local street plowing will commence once the arterial and collector roadways have been cleared. Completion of local street plowing should be done by end of day Sunday.
