Travel Impacts Likely as Ontario Continues to be Pounded with Snow

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Some portions of Ontario have been hounded with snow, and snow is expected to continue this week.

A major winter storm brought significant snow to much of Northwestern Ontario Monday into Tuesday. 

Snowfall totals:
  • Kenora 30 cm
  • Rawson Lake 30 to 35 cm (estimated) 
  • Ear Falls 15 to 20 cm (estimated) 
  • Red Lake 14 cm
  • Pickle Lake 50 cm
  • Thunder Bay airport 12 cm
  • Thunder Bay City Area 12 to 15 cm
  • Marathon 13 cm
  • Geraldton 10 to 15 cm (estimated) 

Today the winter storm that has been impacting Northern Ontario will come to an end.

Snow squalls will affect areas east of Lake Superior, and East and Northeast of Lakes Huron/Georgian Bay, and Eastern Lake Erie. Lake effect snow may also affect areas near Eastern Lake Ontario into the St Lawrence Valley. There are also very strong winds near Eastern Lake Erie and Eastern Lake Ontario.

Tonight we may saw snow squalls southeast of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, and eastern Lake Erie and Eastern Lake Ontario.

It will be a similar set up tomorrow with snow squalls continuing southeast of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. Snow squalls may also be possible east of Lake Superior.
