Snowfall WarningIssued at 11:15 a.m. EST Wednesday 28 January 2015
Snowfall, with total amounts of 15 to 20 cm is expected. A low pressure area approaching from the Northern Plains states is bringing a growing area of snow across Northwestern Ontario, with the snow expected to spread into the regions north of Superior by this afternoon. The snow is expected to become heavy at times later this afternoon and tonight, with total amounts of 15 to possibly 20 cm by Thursday morning. Driving conditions will quickly deteriorate after the snow arrives. Motorists should be prepared for hazardous winter driving conditions from low visibility in areas of heavier snow, and accumulating snow on untreated roads. The snow will end Thursday morning as the low pressure area moves into Northeastern Ontario.Details
Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Snowfall Warnings are issued when significant snowfall is expected. Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required, so stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio.
