Travelling Made Easy With These Tips

THUNDER BAY – WEATHER – As travellers set out across Ontario and Manitoba, the early April weather presents a mixed bag of conditions, from clear skies and sunshine to potential rain showers and flurries.

Whether you’re navigating the highways or planning flights to northern communities, staying informed on the latest weather and travel advisories is essential.

Highway Travel Advisory

Across Ontario and Manitoba, travellers on highways such as the 17, 105, and others leading through cities like Thunder Bay, Dryden, Vermilion Bay, and Winnipeg can expect a variety of conditions. Mornings tend to start cold, with temperatures gradually warming throughout the day.

However, evening and nighttime can bring back the chill, along with increased cloudiness and the possibility of rain showers or flurries, particularly in Manitoba.

For those on the road, it’s crucial to prepare for sudden weather changes. Ensure your vehicle is equipped with winter tires and an emergency kit.

Keep an eye on the wind chill factor in the mornings and plan for a moderate UV index during the day, which calls for sunscreen if you’re out and about.
