Weather Update Rain Boots and Umbrella

Thunder Bay – Weather – There are some fog advisories out this morning across parts of western Ontario.

Thunder Bay

Good morning Thunder Bay! The snow is packing up its bags and heading out this morning, so wave goodbye as you step outside. But don’t put your umbrellas away just yet! There’s a 30% chance of drizzle late this morning and a 30% chance of rain showers in the afternoon, so keep them handy.

We’re expecting about 2 to 4 cm of snowfall, so if you’re feeling ambitious, you could make a mini snowman or a snowball for a quick snowball fight before it melts away.

Winds will be east at 20 km/h, but they’ll become light early this morning, so hold onto your hats as you head out. The high for today will be around 8 degrees, so it’s not quite t-shirt weather yet, but we’ll get there eventually.

As we head into the evening, it’ll be mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain showers changing to a 30% chance of flurries or rain showers overnight. The low will be around zero, so make sure to snuggle up with a warm blanket and a cup of cocoa.

That’s all for now, Thunder Bay! Stay dry and stay warm!
