Snowfall warning for
North Bay – Powassan – Mattawa issued
Very late season heavy snow overnight and Saturday.
An intensifying low pressure system tracking up from Illinois across Lake Huron into Eastern Ontario will bring a late season heavy snowfall to Northeastern Ontario.
Rain ahead of this system will move in this evening then change over to snow by morning as brisk northeasterly winds draw in cold Arctic air.
Latest indications suggest that 15 cm of snow will fall in a 6 to 12 hour period across North Bay and Sudbury and possibly as far north as Earlton by Saturday afternoon.
The snow will taper off to scattered wet flurries in the wake of the storm centre later on Saturday.
Motorists should be prepared for dangerous winter driving conditions from very low visibility in heavy snow and possible snow accumulation on the roads.
Darn and I just put my snowblower away, well…………I refuse to bring it back out, just going to have to melt on its own.
