Winter storm warning in effect for:
Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Heavy snow across many areas today. Mainly rain with the risk of freezing rain for other areas.
Snow and rain will continue over the area today. A narrow zone of freezing rain has also developed near a frontal boundary. This boundary extends from near Timmins to near Chapleau to Lake Superior Park this morning but will continue to drift northward today. By this evening any freezing rain associated with this boundary will come to an end or transition back to snow. The snow will taper to flurries tonight. Strong northwesterly winds gusting up to 50 km are also forecast to develop later today resulting in local blowing snow.
Significant snowfall amounts in the 25 to 40 cm range are expected by the time the snow comes to and end.
Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Road closures are possible.
