Alerts for: Fort Hope - Webequie

Warnings

10:24 PM EDT Wednesday 26 April 2017
Winter storm warning in effect for:

  • Fort Hope - Lansdowne House - Ogoki
  • Webequie

Hazardous winter conditions are expected.

Winter storm with significant snow and freezing rain to begin tonight.

Snow, heavy at times, will arrive this evening in the Fort Hope area, and after midnight over Webequie. 15 to 20 cm of snow is expected to accumulate before the snow changes over to freezing rain and ice pellets on Thursday.

Strong and gusty northeasterly winds will whip up the freshly fallen snow tonight into Thursday, causing low visibility in blowing snow in exposed areas.

Freezing precipitation will continue into Thursday night before changing back to snow or flurries in the wake of the low on Friday.

Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions.

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