ENVIRONMENT CANADA
*************************
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Elliot Lake - Ranger Lake
  • Blind River - Thessalon

Winter storm with 10 to 20 cm of snow and blowing snow Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday.

Snow will begin Tuesday afternoon. Easterly winds gusting up to 60 km/h will cause reduced visibilities in blowing snow. Total snowfall amounts of 10 to 20 cm are possible before the snow tapers off Wednesday afternoon. Travel is likely to be affected.

This snow is associated with a Colorado Low that will cross Ontario Tuesday and Wednesday.

*************************
Winter storm warning in effect for:

  • Espanola - Killarney
  • Manitoulin Island
  • Greater Sudbury and vicinity

Hazardous winter conditions are expected.

Snowfall amounts of 20 to 30 cm and blowing snow Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday.

Snow at times heavy will begin Tuesday near noon or early afternoon. There is a temporary lull in snowfall in the evening. Snow will intensify again Tuesday overnight and persist into Wednesday. Based on the current guidance, the heaviest snow will fall from eastern portions of Manitoulin Island northeast to just south of North Bay. Total snowfall amounts of 20 to 30 cm are expected before snow tapers off Wednesday afternoon.

Strong easterly winds gusting up to 70 km/h will cause reduced visibility in blowing snow.

This snow is associated with a Colorado low that will cross Southern Ontario Tuesday and Wednesday.

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. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.

Winter storm warnings are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
