TUESDAY UPDATE: Areas that didn’t get it last night can it expect overnight into Wednesday. Environment Canada says we’re in for as much as 15 cm of snow by afternoon. It could fall at a rate of two centimetres an hour at times, reducing visibility.
Get the snow brush out of the back of your car. You’ll likely need it the next few days.
A big low pressure system that’s stalled over Lake Huron and Georgian Bay is pulling cold air down from the north.
Environment Canada meteorologist Geoff Coulson says our region will see mixed precipitation, with five or ten centimetres of straight snow more to the west.
“The real concern for the biggest snow amounts through today and tonight is likely around Hearst, or to the west of Hearst,” he predicts.
“The concern I think for Kapuskasing and points east – talking about Cochrane and Timmins, Smooth Rock Falls areas – those are more likely going to be as we get into Tuesday night into Wednesday, as the temperatures continue to fall during the course of the week.”
Coulson says it’s too early to predict an accumulation for the rest of the region.
