THUNDER BAY – WEATHER – The weather outlook starting this morning shows a map free of alerts or warnings. Last night’s weather warnings and advisories have ended.

Readers have asked why our morning weather report is for western and northern Ontario, when so many people call the entire region “Northwestern Ontario”. The reason is simple. From Kenora to Thunder Bay, we are south or Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. We are west of Toronto and north of Toronto. From Sioux Lookout and Red Lake that is where the North of Ontario opens up. Our region of Ontario is the size of France, and to let a Toronto-Centric version of geography to describe us seems ridiculous.
