DRYDEN – WEATHER – NetNewsLedger is issuing a Winter Storm Watch for Dryden and Ignace, as a winter storm is likely to occur from Thursday afternoon through Friday afternoon.

The storm will bring heavy snowfall, with accumulations of 15 to 25 cm, and there will be periods of near-zero visibility due to heavy snow and blowing snow.

Light snow is expected to start falling on Thursday morning and become heavier in the afternoon or evening. The heaviest snowfall is likely to occur on Thursday afternoon and night, with it easing through Friday. Strong easterly winds, gusting up to 60 km/h, will lead to reduced visibility caused by blowing snow.
