Thunder Bay – Weather – The winter weather continues its eastward clip coming out of Manitoba and should start impacting the Western and Northern Ontario regions by late Thursday. As of 6:00 am on October 26, almost all of Western Ontario except for the City of Thunder Bay are under weather advisories from this low-pressure storm system. It is very likely that Thunder Bay won’t escape some snowfall or precipitation.
Regions Affected: Kenora, Dryden, Upsala, Raith, English River, Red Lake, Ear Falls, Fort Frances, Atikokan, Quetico Park, Pickle Lake, Sioux Lookout, Webequie, Cat Lake, Gull Bay, and Lac Seul brace for wintry conditions.
Snowfall Estimates: Projected snow accumulations of 5 to 15 cm could mark the onset of winter.
Timing of Snowfall: Snow is expected to intensify overnight, persisting into Friday morning with lighter flurries expected by afternoon.
Discussion: There remains some uncertainty on the snowfall trajectory and amounts; additional warnings or advisories may follow.
Travel Alert: Motorists urged to exercise caution amidst potentially hazardous driving conditions. As the weather advisories encompass all major highways in the area, including Highway 11/17 and it is early in the season, extra caution for Friday is suggested.
