Environment Canada has issued a Winter Storm Watch west of Thunder Bay stretching east of Thunder Bay. We seem to be right in the middle of where the storm is predicted to go.

A developing low pressure system is expected to track over Northwestern Ontario on Monday. Snow with this system will begin Sunday evening and become heavy overnight. Snow will continue for much of the day Monday before ending Monday evening.

Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are possible by the time the snow ends Monday evening. Strong southeast winds gusting up to 60 km/h will also develop Monday morning and combine with the freshly fallen snow to produce local blowing snow.

Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations.
