Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Greater Sudbury and vicinity

First significant snowfall of the season.

A low pressure system developing over Lake Superior today will deepen as it tracks southeast over Lake Huron towards the Lower Great Lakes Friday. Precipitation associated with this system is expected to begin as a rain - wet snow mix over Greater Sudbury early this evening, then quickly change to all snow as it heads to the North Bay area. Current indications suggest that total snowfall amounts could be in the 10 to 15 cm range northeast of Georgian Bay, with 5 to 10 possible elsewhere. Considerably less snow may accumulate on the ground, however, due to melting. The snow is forecast to taper off Friday night as the low system continues south.
