Special weather statement in effect for:
Blind River – Thessalon
Widespread snow likely today, tonight and Tuesday.
An Alberta Clipper is forecast to sail across Northeastern Ontario tonight. Snow will begin today and continue into Tuesday as the clipper moves through.
Latest indications suggest total snowfall amounts in the 10 to 15 cm range in many areas by the time the snow tapers off to scattered flurries on Tuesday.
Snowfall amounts approaching 15 cm are possible in a few localities near Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. A snowfall warning has been issued for the Espanola – Killarney region where snowfall amounts exceeding 15 cm in 12 hours appear most likely.
Poor winter driving conditions are expected from the general snowfall, and then from occasional low visibility in blowing snow from stiff and cold northerly winds on Tuesday.
Environment Canada will continue to monitor this situation and update statements accordingly.
