As of 8:48 PM EST Saturday, Environment Canada continued the following special weather statement for the North Bay - Powassan - Mattawa - West Nipissing - French River areas.

An Alberta clipper bringing a general 10 to 15 cm snowfall.

Another Alberta clipper over North Dakota is expected to track into Minnesota today then into Wisconsin tonight.

This disturbance is expected to bring a larger area of snow with it.

Snow developed over Northwestern Ontario overnight and will continue to overspread regions from Lake Superior into Northeastern Ontario today.

Total snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm are expected from this disturbance by tonight across Northwestern Ontario, and by Sunday morning near Lake Superior.

The bulk of the snow will fall tonight into Sunday morning for Northeastern Ontario.

Motorists should expect driving conditions to deteriorate and become hazardous at times from accumulating snow on untreated highways and lower visibility in areas of heavier snow.

A very cold air mass delivered fresh from the Arctic will establish itself across the regions in the wake of this disturbance on Sunday. Wind chill warnings may be issued for some regions as required.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.
