Warnings

9:09 PM EDT Sunday 23 April 2017
Snowfall warning in effect for:

  • Ear Falls - Perrault Falls - Western Lac Seul

A significant late season snowfall event is appearing more likely for Monday and Monday night.

Snow is expected to develop on Monday across portions of northwestern Ontario and become heavy at times in the afternoon and evening. Snowfall accumulations of 15 to 20 cm are likely by Tuesday morning. Gusty northeast winds to 50 km/h will produce some blowing snow as well.

There is also a risk of some freezing rain in some areas.

This snowfall warning may need to be expanded to include other regions as additional information becomes available.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. 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.

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.

 

Statements

9:14 PM EDT Sunday 23 April 2017
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Red Lake - Woodland Caribou Park

A significant late season snowfall event is possible Monday and Monday night.

Snow is expected to develop on Monday across portions of northwestern Ontario and become heavy at times in the afternoon and evening. Some areas may receive 10 to 20 cm by Tuesday morning. Gusty northeast winds to 50 km/h will produce some blowing snow as well.

For areas close to the Minnesota border, there is also a risk of some freezing rain or rain. As a result, snowfall accumulations are likely to be less than areas farther north. The town of Red Lake appears to be on the edge of the axis of heaviest snow and is being monitored for a potential snowfall warning.

Snowfall warnings have already been issued for areas including Kenora, Dryden, Ear Falls and Sioux Lookout where the heavy snow appears the most likely. The warning may need to be expanded to adjacent areas if significant snowfall amounts appear more likely.

Driving conditions are expected to deteriorate Monday after the snow arrives. Motorists should adjust travel plans accordingly.

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.
