Snowfall warning in effect for:

Blind River – Thessalon
Espanola – Killarney
Significant snowfall is expected Wednesday.

Snow, heavy at times, is expected to develop Wednesday morning and continue into Wednesday evening. The precipitation may fall as rain near the shoreline which would reduce snowfall amounts in those areas.

Total snowfall amounts near 15 cm are likely over inland areas by Wednesday evening.

Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.
