Blizzard-like conditions whip through northern Ont., 30+ cm

Monday, April 16, 2018, 7:40 PM - After a slow moving system took a damaging toll on much of southern Ontario this past weekend, northern parts of the province saw blizzard-like conditions that prompted winter storm warnings on Monday. While much of the snow lifts into far northern Ontario for Tuesday, some further accumulations - and ongoing strong winds and low-visibility - continue through the overnight for many.


WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Heaviest of the snow lifts into extreme northern Ontario overnight Monday into Tuesday
  • Winter storm conditions ease overnight from Geraldton - Kapuskasing - Timmins south
  • 20 to 30 cm storm totals expected by time storm tapers off Monday night, mainly north of Timmins
  • Blustery winds contribute to poor visibility through predawn hours on Tuesday

WATCH BELOW: TIMING THE STORM



HEAVY SNOW, GUSTY WINDS PRODUCE BLIZZARD-LIKE CONDITIONS

Snowfall wrapped around northern Ontario through the day on Monday, dropping up to 15 cm of snow on Thunder Bay and 10 to 15 on Timmins. Some slight additional accumulation is expected through Monday night - generally less than an additional 5 cm over the northwest, and less than 10 for the northeast, bringing totals across the board to between 20 and 25 cm by the time the storm has moved out Tuesday morning.

The exception will be over the far north, where precipitation curling around the low pressure centre will prolong snowfall and winter storm conditions through Wednesday, dropping 10 to 20 cm north of Kapuskasing and Geraldton.

Winds will, thankfully, ease through Monday night as the bulk of the storm moves on into Quebec, however, bringing an end to blowing snow and improving visibility for travel.
