Snowfall is expected Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning with amounts of 4-8 cm.
Peak snowfall rates could reach 2 cm per hour.
Snowfall accumulations could be limited due to warm surface temperatures and snow will begin to switch to rain later Tuesday evening and into the overnight hours, however, areas over higher terrain like the escarpment will likely remain as snow.
Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways, and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow and become icy and slippery.
A weather advisory is issued for:
- North Bay - West Nipissing
- South River - Burk's Falls
- Bayfield Inlet - Dunchurch
- Deep River - Whitney - Eastern Algonquin Park
- Huntsville - Baysville
Be prepared to adjust your driving to changing road conditions. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead, and be prepared to stop.
