Winter storm watch in effect for:

  • Elliot Lake - Ranger Lake

Winter storm possible Thursday night into Saturday.

Snow, heavy at times, with total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm possible.
Gusty northeasterly winds may result in blowing snow which could reduce visibility at times.

Snow or rain is expected Thursday in advance of the main event. Snow, heavy at times, is forecast to begin Thursday night or early Friday morning. Snow will linger into Saturday before tapering off late Saturday.

Snow, heavy at times, along with gusty northeasterly winds develop Thursday night into Friday. Snow may quickly accumulate and visibility may be significantly reduced at times. Snow may mix with rain throughout the day on Friday, reducing snow accumulations in some areas. Significant travel delays and road closures may occur.

There remains some uncertainty at this point to exact snowfall amounts across the region due to uncertainties with how much rain mixes in with snow during the event.

Winter storm warnings or snowfall warnings may be issued as the event draws nearer.

Avoid travel if possible. If you must travel, keep others informed of your schedule and destination and carry an emergency kit and mobile phone.
